Introduction

DTI tractography holds promises for mapping white matter pathways in-vivo. However, the validation of tractography results remains the major bottleneck to clinical usability and utility, since neurosurgeons and scientists face the challenge of selecting the appropriate tractography method in the absence of ground truth. This workshop aims at comparing tractography algorithms performances in the reconstruction of the corticospinal tract in a controlled environment using software generated DTI phantoms, and in a clinical workflow of neurosurgical cases. The event will gather practicing neurosurgeons, both as participants and as judges, and international teams in DTI tractography

This workshop is the second edition of the DTI Tractography Challenge that was held at the MICCAI 2011 conference in Toronto, Canada.
