The NIH MRI Study of Normal Brain Development (PedsMRI) aims to study human brain development (birth 18 years) using MRI modalities including diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). In preparation for the upcoming PedsMRI data release, including DTI data for the first time, we performed an analysis of variability on the PedsMRI phantom DTI data with the aim of providing high quality DTI imaging data for the public data repository.
