Tract-based spatial statistics (TBSS) performed spatial normalization for group analysis in brain white matter. Due to the limited size of the mother's womb, twin has a high incidence of the prematurity. We aim to compare the development of brain white matter between preterm infants and twin infants at term gestational age using tract-based spatial statistics (TBSS). According to the voxel-wise analyses there was no significant FA difference between twin infants and preterm infants at term equivalent age.
