The knowledge of intra- and inter-subject variability of diffusion kurtosis imaging metrics plays an important role for interpretation of the results of the clinical trials. The purpose of this work is to investigate and compare between-session variability of a single subject with between-subject variability diffusion kurtosis parameters in different anatomical regions. Variability is quantified in terms of the coefficient of variation, which can provide the baseline for interpretation of clinical trials and single-subject longitudinal examinations.
