We performed an along tract analysis of the cortico-spinal tract in a group of healthy subjects using a probabilistic tractography algorithm. We were able to evaluate CST reconstruction along the tract using appropriate performance metrics, based on the congruence of fibre paths in the subject population, and the presence or absence of fibre tracks identified as originating from the precentral gyrus. The method was compatible with clinical protocols given spatial definition and tract localization obtained.
