Documentation and Tutorials

If you are new to DSI Studio, I would recommend starting with Read DICOM, NIFTI, Bruker 2dseq, or Varian FDF files. This gives you a step-by-step manual to create an SRC file from DICOM files or NIFTI data. Once you get the SRC file, you may continue to do the reconstruction. An SRC file can be reconstructed by DTI, GQI, or QSDR. All these methods can be applied to conventional DTI dataset. The reconstruction generates an FIB file, which allows you to do fiber tracking. You may need to familiarize with the details about how to use ROIs and tune the fiber tracking parameters. Until here you already have the basic skill to generate fiber tracks, and you can move on to the topics about Diffusion MRI Analysis Protocol. This includes basic methods to more advanced approaches. You may also need to know how to visualize your result (see the Visualization section below) or use the command line interface to process a large amount of data.  

Diffusion MRI Acquisition, Reconstruction, and Tractography

Acquire dMRI Data: Diffusion MRI acquisition
Step T2: Reconstruction
Step T3: Fiber tracking
Differential Tractography

Differential tractography is a fiber tracking approach that aims to find tracks with neuronal change in individuals. 

Differential tractography for longitudinal data

Differential tractography for cross sectional data

Connectometry is a fiber tracking approach that aims to find tracks with anisotropy correlated with a study variable in a group of subjects.
Step C1-C2: Create a connectometry database
Step C3: Group connectometry analysis
