Preterm infants have an increased risk of future
neurodevelopmental impairmentthat is correlated with the
degree of prematurity at birth. Diffusion tensor imaging
(DTI) enables the visualization and quantitative
characterization of white matter in vivo. Especially
tract-based spatial statistics (TBSS) performed spatial
normalization for group analysis in brain white matter.
In this study, we performed analyses of white matter
development between full-term infants and preterm
infants at equivalent age using TBSS.
