Diffusion MRI (dMRI) is a unique imaging technique for in vivo characterization of tissue microstructure and white matter pathways. However, its relatively long acquisition time implies greater motion artifacts when imaging, for example, infants and Parkinson's disease patients. To accelerate dMRI acquisition, we propose in this paper (i) a diffusion encoding scheme, called Slice-Interleaved Diffusion Encoding (SIDE), that interleaves each diffusion-weighted (DW) image volume with slices that…

Globally Optimized Super-Resolution of Diffusion MRI Data via Fiber Continuity
This paper introduces a technique for super-resolution reconstruction of diffusion MRI, harnessing fiber-continuity (FC) as a constraint in a global whole-brain optimization framework, and devise a global optimization framework that allows solutions pertaining to all voxels to be solved simultaneously.


Multifold Acceleration of Diffusion MRI via Deep Learning Reconstruction from Slice-Undersampled Data
It is shown that complementary information from DW volumes corresponding to different diffusion wavevectors can be harnessed using graph convolutional neural networks for reconstruction of the full DW volumes.
Reconstructing High-Quality Diffusion MRI Data from Orthogonal Slice-Undersampled Data Using Graph Convolutional Neural Networks
A super-resolution (SR) reconstruction method based on orthogonal slice-undersampling for accelerated dMRI acquisition, which demonstrates that acceleration up to a factor of 5 can be achieved with minimal information loss and mitigates partial volume effects.
A joint compressed-sensing and super-resolution approach for very high-resolution diffusion imaging
This work proposes a novel acquisition and reconstruction scheme for obtaining high spatial resolution dMRI images using multiple low resolution (LR) images, which is effective in reducing acquisition time while improving the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).
Super-Resolution Reconstruction of Diffusion-Weighted Images using 4D Low-Rank and Total Variation
An image post-processing method to estimate a high spatial resolution DWI from the input low-resolution DWI, e.g., at a factor of 2.5, is proposed, and results show that the proposed method is able to recover the fine details of white matter structures, and outperform other approaches such as interpolation methods, non-local means based upsampling, and total variation basedupsampling.
Joint 6D k-q Space Compressed Sensing for Accelerated High Angular Resolution Diffusion MRI
This paper proposes a framework, called 6-Dimensional Compressed Sensing diffusion MRI (6D-CS-dMRI), for reconstruction of the diffusion signal and the EAP from data sub-sampled in both 3D k-space and 3D q-space, and is the first work that applies compressed sensing in the full 6 D k-q space and reconstructs the diffusion sign and EAP in continuous displacement space.

Angular Upsampling in Infant Diffusion MRI Using Neighborhood Matching in x-q Space
This paper harnesses non-local self-similar information in the x-q space of diffusion MRI data for q-space upsampling and allows information from curved white matter structures to be used for effective regularization of the otherwise ill-posed problem.

This work has shown that it is possible to resolve intravoxel fiber crossing using mixture model decomposition of the high angular resolution diffusion imaging (HARDI) signal, but mixture modeling requires a model of the underlying diffusion process.
Advances in diffusion MRI acquisition and processing in the Human Connectome Project
