I worked with DTI a few weeks ago and used FDT in order to compute FA

Recently, I acquired a set of diffusion weigthed images on a subject

1 b=0 s/mm2 + 32 different encoding directions at b=1000 s/mm2
resolution = 2x2x2 mm3
Using the 'Movie mode' of fslview shows that very little distortion

In all cases, spurious geometrical distortions remain the same after
applying the modified 'eddy_correct'.
I also used the option "-interp nearestneighbour" in order to better
uncorrected and corrected series (less blurring). To do this, I used
'avwmaths++' with '-Tstd' option in order to compute the std volume of
corrected diffusion weighetd volumes. After correction, greater values
appear at the periphery of the brain.
Does anyone have already seen a similar effect of 'eddy_correct' ?
What about using -refweight or -inweight of FLIRT ? How can I use this
Thanks for any response
