The aim of this study was to use diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to identify differences in the maturation of deep gray matter (GM) and white matter (WM) between patients with spina bifida cystica (SBC) (n=29) with normal-appearing brains on conventional MRI, and age-matched and sex-matched healthy control participants (n=33). Changes in DTI metrics were… CONTINUE READING
