On evaluating the accuracy and biological plausibility of diffusion MRI tractograms
Title of the conference

In diffusion MRI, traditional tractography algorithms do not recover truly quantitative tractograms and the structural connectivity has to be estimated indirectly by counting the number of fiber tracts or averaging scalar maps along them. Recently, global and efficient methods have emerged to estimate more quantitative tractograms by combining tractography with local models for the diffusion signal, like the Convex Optimization Modeling for Microstructure Informed Tractography (COMMIT) framework. In this abstract, we show the importance of using both (i) proper multi-compartment diffusion models and (ii) adequate multi-shell acquisitions, in order to evaluate the accuracy and the biological plausibility of the tractograms.
