ROI sketch diagram. The 3D T1WI and QSM images were coregistered to a magnitude image of the first echo acquired from the 3D GRE sequence of the same subject by using FSL software. The gray matter nuclei and the frontal white matter (ROIs larger than 150 voxels) were drawn entirely by hand. The average QSM value in each ROI was then computed from all voxels overlapping with the corresponding label.
