This study aimed to evaluate the performance of three b-value sampling schemes in calculating multiple diffusion models, including the DTI, DKI, NODDI and the newly proposed mean apparent propagator (MAP)-MRI models. The three schemes includes the conventional diffusion spectrum imaging (DSI) acquisition scheme based on Cartesian grid sampling in q-space, multi-shell sampling with the same (MDDW) or different (FREE) gradient directions in each shell. Each scheme supports the estimation of all the four models. The results showed that generally three schemes generated very similar parameters, and could be all used in future studies.
