  1. DTI differences between NPSLE patients and controls. Upper section lists significant regions in which controls had greater fractional anisotropy (FA) than NPSLE patients. Lower panel lists regions in which NPSLE patients had greater mean diffusivity (MD) than control subjects. Voxels = significant contiguous voxel cluster. Max-t = t statistic of voxel cluster difference between controls and NPSLE. MNI X, Y, Z = Montreal Neurological Institute coordinates of centroid location of significant voxel cluster. CC = corpus callosum.
