Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI) was introduced to
explore the human connectome in vivo; although many
fiber tractography (FT) algorithms exist, proving the
effectiveness of their estimates is challenging. We
present a biologically and physically realistic software
phantom, with brain-like fibres configuration and
images, fully tunable in terms of simulated
acquisition parameters: a realistic bench test for
quantitative analyses of every DWI-related algorithm.
