Fiber Tract Based Interrogation of White Matter

We present a method for interrogating white matter associated with fiber tracts derived from diffusion tensor MRI. By integrating the diffusivity of the underlying tensors along the direction of the identified fiber bundles, we hope to gain additional information regarding the micro architecture of the tissue. A study was performed examining fiber bundles that passed through the midsagittal corpus callosum in pediatric patients diagnosed with chromosome 22Q11.2 deletion syndrome as well as age matched controls.
