Altered regional brain white matter in dry eye patients: a brain imaging study


Figure 1. Comparison of DTI value of HC and PAT group. Mean DTI values between PAT and HC groups (AC). (A) ROI1-left superior longitudinal fasciculus; ROI2-body of corpus callosum. (B) ROI1-left superior longitudinal fasciculus; ROI2-right posterior limb of internal capsule. ROI3-right posterior thalamic radiation. (C) ROI1-genu of corpus callosum; ROI2-right posterior limb of internal capsule; ROI3-right splenium of corpus callosum. Significant difference in mean DTI value between HC and PAT group. (D) The red area indicates that the value of PAT is higher than HC and blue areas indicate lower values. Abbreviations: FA: fractional anisotropy; MD: mean diffusivity; AD: axial diffusivity; HC: healthy controls; PAT: patient; ROI: region of interest.
