MRI systems and protocols capable of achieving diffusion measurements with comparable imaging parameters and equal or better performance to the Human Connect Project (NCP) acquisitions will enable studies in additional populations or patient groups to leverage existing HCP data as control data, decreasing costs and increasing statistical power of findings. To evaluate new MRI systems and potential protocols, we present an automated and quantitative method for evaluation of diffusion imaging performance from in-vivo data, use this method to evaluate the performance of a dMRI protocol acquired in a prototype wide bore 3T MRI system.
