Metrics provided by DKI could be used to detect microstructural changes. However, they bear no explicit neurobiological interpretations. In contrast, the biophysical model of NODDI could provide metrics sensitive to density of neuron. The magnetic susceptibility derived from QSM method can sever as a sensitive biomarker for quantifying density of cells including both neurons and neuroglia.
