Diffusion Tensor Imaging has proved to be very useful in early diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. In this work, we analyze the properties of fractional anisotropy, trace and fiber lengths on lesion locations, normal appearing white matter and healthy brain regions. By using this knowledge, we employ a statistical inference scheme to help detection of candidate lesion locations.
