A multishell diffusion neuro protocol at 1.5 mm isotropic resolution was acquired in 10 minutes with a high performance MAGNUS head gradient coil (200 mT/m with 500 mT/m/ms slew) at 3.0 T, and reconstructed using random matrix theory (RMT) denoising at the coil level. The SNR enhancement due to RMT reconstruction, and the nearly distortion-free images due to high slew rate, yield precise diffusion and kurtosis maps, fiber-dispersion, as well as microstructure parameters estimated using 3-compartment Standard Model of diffusion. We draw compartment fractions and diffusivities on fiber-tracts reconstructed based on fiber ODFs estimated by deconvolving model-based local fiber response.
