Connectograms based on diffusion MRI data employ graphs to demonstrate white matter connections and cortical characteristics. Connectograms can inform treatment of patients with neuroanatomical abnormalities. They can also be used for average cortical metrics and tractography data, across populations of any size.

Characteristics of a Connectogram

The outermost cortical surface ring:

Inside the cortical ring represented such as:

Inside the circles:

The opacity of the lines represent number of connections. Fiber color gives fractional anisotropy. [1]
