Reproducible Research: Quest for the Ground Truth
Combined Educational & Scientific Session

ORGANIZERS: Lijun Bao, Tony Stoecker

Thursday, 16 May 2019
Room 710A  13:45 - 15:45 Moderators:  Chunlei Liu, Ingolf Sack

Skill Level: Basic to Advanced

Session Number: TH-06

Especially in quantitative MRI applications, ground truth knowledge is required to validate novel methodologies. The course will give an overview of methods to validate reproducibility in qMRI. Several examples will be discussed how to generate ground truth data in quantitative MRI.

Target Audience
Everyone interested in understanding and generating ground truth data for the validation of quantitative MRI methodology.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Describe methods to evaluate reproducibility;
- Recognize the difference between accuracy and precision; and
- Describe methods to generate ground truth data such as phantoms, complementary methods, and simulations.


How to Assess Accuracy & Reproducibility in qMRI
Kathryn Keenan
In this talk, we'll discuss the design of repeatability and reproducibility studies in home-built phantoms, standard phantoms and in vivo on our quest for ground truth.
