We present a multi-parameter tract profiling approach which allows for comparing diffusion imaging quantities between a single subject and a reference group along specific white matter path ways using the Mahalanobis distance (MaD). Implementation of MaD-Tract on a pediatric TBI-affected brain revealed several deviant tract segments in terms of elevated MaD values along multiple tracts compared to a group of healthy individuals.
