We created a batch process which refines raw DTI data; it reduces ghosts and filters noise, strips extramenigeal tissue and registered to an atlas, which we created from high resolution DTI data to avoid mis-registration with spin-echo derived data. 3D-masks of 17 brain structures were created to facilitate automatic evaluation of the data.
