We applied quantitative DTI to investigate the
association between alcohol use and white matter
integrity in adults. The purpose of this study was to
examine the reproducibility of the DTI by evaluating
measures of anisotropy and diffusivity in brain regions
such as the fornix, cingulum, and the corpus callosum.
In the FA map of alcoholic, the white matter in the area
of cingulum and corpus callosum shows a decrease in
