Abstract: Streamline number and streamline length are quantitative tractography metrics that are influenced by white matter pathology. We propose to assess streamline length in a fully automated voxel-wise manner. The length distribution within an individual voxel can be described by a mixture of Gaussian distributions, and compared across subjects. Voxel-wise length distributions appear to be highly reproducible over time. We demonstrate how this new method can be used to identify fibre populations affected by white matter pathology.
