Diffusion MRI (dMRI) is being used increasingly in studies of the brain and other parts of the body for its ability to provide quantitative measures that are sensitive to changes in tissue microstructure. There is strong interest in reliable combination of data acquired on different MRI scanners and/or with different protocols to increase the statistical power and sensitivity of dMRI studies, with obvious benefits in trials and multi-centre research, particularly in rare diseases or with difficult-to-recruit participants. This talk focuses on the sources of variability in multi-centre studies, solutions that have been proposed to deal with variability in joint analyses, and open challenges in the era of ‘big data’ for dMRI and tractography.
