About this Research Topic
Diffusion MRI (dMRI) is an advanced imaging technique that measures the molecular motion (diffusion) of water molecules. dMRI is the only noninvasive technique for mapping of brain white matter. dMRI also enables modeling and quantification of tissue microstructure in the brain, providing insights for understanding tissue structure and compartmentation. Nowadays, dMRI, in combination with advances in AI and machine learning, are playing a vital role in clinical and research applications for understanding neurological development, brain function and structure, and brain disease.
The goal of this Research Topic is to offer opportunities to share new perspectives on the most recent research challenges in the field of dMRI and AI, and also offers a valuable venue for anyone interested in learning AI techniques in diffusion MRI. This Research Topic includes rigorous mathematical derivations, novel machine learning techniques, and clinically relevant results. As such, it will be of interest to technical and clinical researchers.
We welcome submissions of both research and review articles covering but not limited to a broad range of topics:
- dMRI signal reconstruction, denoising, artifact correction, etc.
- dMRI segmentation, registration, etc.
- Machine learning and deep learning for diffusion MRI
- Tissue microstructure modeling
- Tractography and study of brain structural connectivity features
- Clinical applications using dMRI and AI (neurological development, brain function, brain disease, etc.)
Keywords: Diffusion MRI, Artificial intelligence, Deep learning, Machine learning, Tissue modeling, Tractography, Diffusion acquisition, White matter analysis, Clinical outcome, Brain disease diagnosis, Brain structure and function
