Course and workshop

A Concise Course in Diffusion MRI

This online material aims to provide a quick overview of diffusion MRI. Each topic has a DSI Studio exercise section and a question section to help understand the materials. 

Future workshop

  • DSI Studio workshop, Nov 20-21, Pittsburgh, 2019.
         Interested participants please pre-register here. We will only host the workshop if there is enough participants (TBD in mid-October).

         We will seek financial support from the University to make registration free, but participants will need to cover their own travel costs.
