Tractography frequently fails in aging brain because diffusion parameters dramatically decrease in regions of WM hyperintensities (WMH) which one are very common in this population. We developed here a pipeline taking into account this pitfall to truly investigate the microstructural properties of the cingulum bundles in presence and absence of WMH.
