10 / High angular resolution diffusion imaging data used to show diffusion surfaces in three dimensions in the brain. This allows for a higher-resolution image than conventional diffusion tensor imaging but generates a great deal more data, making data mining and analysis more complex. Reprinted from Moriah E. Thomason and Paul M. Thompson, 2011, Diffusion imaging, white matter, and psychopathology, Annual Review of Clinical Psychology 7:63-85, with permission from Annual Reviews, Inc. /

spectacular detailed images of crossing fibers that would confuse an ordinary diffusion tensor imaging scan. However, it generates a great deal more data, necessitating advances in data mining and analysis. It is safe to say that much work remains to be done, from both the experimental and analytical sides.
