  Introduction
        Start here  
 
  Welcome to our interactive tool for learning  
  the anatomy of the white matter tracts, as  
  seen on diffusion tensor imaging (DTI)  
     
  Use the arrows to navigate the tutorial.  
  Alternatively, the terms on the left of the  
  screen can be clicked to revisit any of the  
  tracts.  
     
  For each major tract, multiplanar DTI images  
  are presented with brief descriptions of:  
  1. What they connect  
  2. Their major function(s)  
  3. Clinical relevance  
     
  An atlas of axial images is provided at the end  
  and can be visited any time for educational  
  or clinical reference.
