Fractal Dimension as a Global Descriptor of the White Matter in Diffusion MRI Group Studies (ISMRM'2016)

Poster presented at ISMRM'2016 (Singapore)

ABSTRACT: Simple global measures describing the complexity of the white matter architecture can provide useful information when analyz- ing diffusion MRI data, and can be even capable of finding sta- tistical differences between groups. We propose the use of the fractal dimension of the FA maps for that purpose, and illustrate its potential on a dataset composed of elderly subjects and pa- tients from three different stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
