Diffusion-weighted MRI uses the diffusivity of underlying structures to non-invasively map axonal tracts in the white matter of the brain. The developed application uses diffusion-weighted images and a T2-weighted image to model tractography and generate tensor statistics in an integrated pipeline. Registration algorithms have been implemented to integrate pre-processing steps, yielding a novel pipeline for efficient analysis. User tools have been developed to allow for the quantification and analysis of tractography models generated from a deterministic approach to tensor analysis. This DTI pipeline is the result of a collaborative research between the Center for Information Technology's Biomedical Imaging Research Services Section, the Clinical Center, and the Center for Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine.
