Abstract

In this study, we introduce a new technique to model the variation of microstructural parameters across speci c brain regions. We use a simple model of di usion in each voxel, but model the variation of parameters across the region using penalised splines. We t the whole region model directly to the di usion-weighted signals. We test the tech- nique on the mid-sagittal section of the corpus callosum (CC) using a di usion MRI data set with distinct age groups. The method detects di erences and separates the groups.
