Which SPM version to use

It must first be noted that different versions of SPM do not produce identical results. SPM99 has been used by our group for many studies and is well validated.

Generally speaking, SPM99 is more conservative than SPM2 / SPM5. This may well be an advantage when segmenting MS brain images.

Local users may refer to the qualitative SPM comparison. Other readers are encouraged to carry out a validation to determine which version is best suited to their data.
