We performed multi-shell 3D segmented EPI on a post mortem macaque brain at 11.7T (resolution 200 μm iso, 120 directions) and evaluated NODDI as a tool to accurately extract brainstem pathways. We showed that the orientation dispersion map can help in segmenting ROIs used for tractography. Microstructure information opens promising perspectives for the exploration of the brainstem complex organization ex vivo in human and non-human primate.
