Description: We investigated if prior glucocorticoid treatment would be associated with differences in fractional anisotropy (FA) in the uncinate fasciculi and cingulum bundle. We performed diffusion-weighted imaging in 28 children and adolescents aged 7-16 years previously treated with glucocorticoids for non-cerebral diseases (nephrotic syndrome or rheumatic disease) and 28 healthy controls. Tract-Based Spatial Statistics (TBSS) was used to create a mean FA skeleton, representing the centers of all white matter fibre tracts common to the group. Here we provide two effect-size maps, i.e. unthresholded t-maps, displaying 1) the difference in FA between patients and controls, and 2) glucocorticoid dose-response associations in patients across the white matter skeleton.Communities: developmental
