Abstract

We introduce a method for combining fiber tracking from diffusion-tensor (DT) imaging with cortical gray matter parcellation from structural high-spatial-resolution 3D spolied gradient-recalled acquisition in the steady state images. We applied this method to a a tumor case to determine the impact of the tumor on white matter architecture. We conlude that this new method for combining structural and DT imaging data is useful for understanding cortical connectivity and the localization of fiber tracts and their relationship with cortical anatomy and brain abnormalities.
