It might make more sense to tweak the settings for the skull stripping (i.e.
make sure that -c, -r, and -g are optimally set).  -r should equal the
radius of the brain from the center to the farthest edge, -c should be
placed in actual center of the brain, and -g can be used to counteract
intensity bias.

 

Peace,

What about using mean diffusivity?

That would work, except that there are voxels outside the brain with FA
values equal to those found in the brain which makes thresholding difficult.
It would be ideal to have an image where values in the brain are different
than those outside the brain, and I was under the impression that these
isotropic diffusion images fit the bill. Let me know if this is incorrect.
