Diffusion MR Imaging for brain connectivity analysis : from fast acquisition to advanced statistical analysis
In this talk I will discuss diffusion MR imaging as a tool for macroscopic studying brain connectivity in-vivo. I will first explain how MR imaging can be used to measure diffusion in the human brain and how the diffusion phenomenon is related to white matter architecture. Several diffusion MR protocols will be presented, including Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) and Diffusion Spectrum Imaging (DSI). Then I will show advanced image analysis techniques developed to infer information on brain connectivity from diffusion MR images, and how this can be applied to study global brain connectivity both in normal and pathological cases.
