I am beginning to examine the relations between white matter integrity and neurobehavioural functioning using Diffusion Tensor MRI. Specifically, my goal is to determine whether quantitative DT-MRI values within regions of interest in the brain are related to neurocognitive outcome. Using MRI imaging methods to identify changes in the brain that are predictive of later neuropsychologic toxicity may make it possible to modify treatment among patients at risk, perhaps avoiding severe sequelae.
