Alexander Leemans:

"Diffusion MRI based structural brain connectivity: What, how, and why?"

"With its unique way of characterizing tissue microstructure, diffusion MRI (dMRI) has been used in numerous clinical and biomedical applications. In addition to an introduction to the basic concepts of dMRI, I will cover practical guidelines on quality and processing of dMRI data for subsequent analysis. Several considerations regarding dMRI limitations and data interpretation will also be presented.
