How to get more out of a clinically feasible 64 Gradient dMRI Acquisition: Multi-Shell versus Single-Shell

Abstract : For clinical applications the number of diffusion MRI (dMRI) samples that can be obtained is often limited by scanner time and patient comfort. For this reason one often uses short scanning protocols that acquire just 32 or 64 gradient directions using a single b-value to obtain diffusion measures such as the fractional anisotropy from Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) 1 or to estimate the white matter orientation using Constrained Spherical Deconvolution (CSD) 2. Using 3D-SHORE 3 and MAP-MRI 4 , we show that by spreading the same number of dMRI samples over different b-shells (sampling angularly and radially) we can estimate not only the directionality of the white matter using the ODF, but also the radially dependent higher order diffusion measures that SHORE and MAP-MRI provide. This approach lends itself well for situations where acquisition time is limited, and is therefore particularly well suited for clinical applications.
