2 To investigate the association between MR-DKI metrics, neurocognitive and functional outcomes in childhood intracranial germinoma survivors. 3 To compare the degree of white and gray matter loss, neurocognitive and functional outcomes in intracranial germinoma affecting different regions of the brain e.g. pineal vs. suprasellar vs. basal ganglia.
