DTI2: Diffusion Tensor Imaging: more fractional anisotropy profiles and outcomes


A diffusion tensor imaging dataset used in Swihart et al. (2012). Mean diffusivity profiles for the corpus callosum (cca) and parallel diffusivity for the right corticospinal tract (rcst). Accompanying the profiles are the subject ID numbers, visit number, and Paced Auditory Serial Addition Test (pasat) score. We thank Dr. Daniel Reich for making this dataset available.



A data frame made up of


a 340 x 93 matrix of fractional anisotropy profiles from the corpus callosum;


a 340 x 55 matrix of fractional anisotropy profiles from the right corticospinal tract;


numeric vector of subject ID numbers;


numeric vector of the subject-specific visit numbers;


numeric vector containing the PASAT score at each visit.


If you use this data as an example in written work, please include the following acknowledgment: ``The MRI/DTI data were collected at Johns Hopkins University and the Kennedy-Krieger Institute"

Note: DTI2 uses mean diffusivity of the the corpus callosum rather than fractional anisotropy (FA), and parallel diffusivity of the rcst rather than FA. Please see the documentation for DTI for more about the DTI dataset.
