Abstract

Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) uses single shell gradient encoding scheme for studying brain tissue diffusion. NODDI (Neurite Orientation Dispersion and Density Imaging) incorporates a gradient scheme with multiple b-values which is used to characterize neurite density and coherence of neuron fiber orientations. Similarly, the diffusion kurtosis imaging also uses a multiple shell scheme to quantify non-Gaussian diffusion but does not assume a tissue model like NODDI. In this study we investigate the connection between metrics used by NODDI and DKI in children with ages from 46 weeks to 6 years. We correlate the NODDI metrics and Kurtosis measures from the same ROIs in multiple brain regions. We compare the range of these metrics between neonates (46 - 47 weeks), infants (2 -10 months) and young children (2 - 6 years).
