A novel method for realistic DWI data generation


Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI) was introduced to explore the human connectome in vivo; although many fiber tractography (FT) algorithms exist, proving the effectiveness of their estimates is challenging. We present a biologically and physically realistic software phantom, with brain-like fibres configuration and images, fully tuneable in terms of ‘simulated acquisition’ parameters: a realistic bench test for quantitative analyses of every DWI-related algorithm
