Visualization of Diffusion MRI Data

Show Summary Details


Challenged by the complex nature of diffusion MRI data, many efforts have been made over the last decade to provide new visualization approaches for these multidimensional data that are both meaningful and practical. This chapter reviews the different visualization methods that have been applied to diffusion MRI data and covers both the conventional two-dimensional (2D) image maps of specific diffusion properties and the more advanced three-dimensional (3D) display methods, such as diffusion glyph representations (e.g., cylinders, cuboids, ellipsoids, and superquadrics), volume and surface renderings, and tractography visualizations (e.g., streamlines, streamtubes, streamsurfaces, and “connectivity” maps).
