In this study, we design a unique bootstrapping method to approximate the distributions of diffusion MRI parameters derived from scans that utilize simultaneous multislice techniques compared to the distribution of parameters fit from a single slice EPI sequence. While there are no statistically significant differences between accelerated and non-accelerated datasets, there are some subtle differences that may warrant closer inspection.
