I will tell you what I did and also a second idea, which I think won’t work.
What I did is : analysed the contralateral hemisphere for both and combined the results – the right hemisphere of the patients with a tumor on the left side and the left hemisphere of the patients with the tumor on the right side.
In this case, the results are accurate but not combined. I would rather be able to mirror the patients for example with tumor on the left side so that I would be able to do one analysis for all the patients.
Concerning the last sentence (just above this one) I had the following ideas:
To re-name the atlas.pvc-thickness_0-6mm.smooth2.5mm.left.mid.cortex.dfs
a)left to right (for the patients for example with left side tumors) so that all the tumors will be on the same side and the side analysed will be the one that I need (contralateral)
In this case, I am afraid that the volumetric results won’t be right, because the structures of the left side will have the values of the right side.
b)in place of left to write ipsilateral and in place of right to write contralateral (or reverse, according each time to each case).
In this case, I am afraid that bssr won’t even work.
What do you think?
I hope you can understand my thoughts.
