INI's Ryan Cabeen Wins 3-D Tractography Challenge

Ryan Cabeen, postdoctoral scholar at the Mark and Mary Stevens Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute, has won the International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging's 2018 VoTEM challenge for 3-D tractography.

Cabeen's winning visualization, shown above, depicts neural connectivity in the squirrel monkey and macaque. His work helps reconstruct fiber bundles, a challenge of diffusion MRI, in both phantoms and brain tissue. Below, Cabeen with one of the coolest trophies we've ever seen.
