The study tested the estimation accuracy of Neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging (NODDI) using a common 2-shell protocol with the same gradient direction at each shell. The experiment used visual and quantitative comparisons to demonstrate that the common 2-shell protocol had very similar performance as the optimized NODDI protocol, but is easy to configure in a commercial scanner, thus can be widely adopted in clinical study.
