The contrast provided by diffusion MRI has been exploited repeatedly for in vivo segmentations of thalamic nuclei. This paper systematically investigates the benefits of high-angular resolution (HARDI) data for this purpose. An empirical analysis of clustering stability reveals a clear advantage of acquiring HARDI data at b = 1000 s/mm2. However, based on… CONTINUE READING
