Aim of this study is to investigate, through DTI, structural white matter (WM) asymmetries in newborns and compare these differences in control and in preterm newborns scanned at term. Both controls and preterms show multiple regions of asymmetries in all the DTI indices. A small area localised in the talamic radiations was found to have a significant difference of WM brain asymmetries between the two groups of subjects.
