A. Based on published results (Pagani et a., 2010; and others) comparing DTI scalar results between MRI scanners on the same subjects provided  significantly different results even though data were acquired at the same magnetic field and identical encoding, spatial and temporal parameters.  This may be asily inspected prior to spatial normaliztion. If you have some water phantom measurements from the different scanners along with Temperature, eddy current calibraion maps, field inhomogenieties,  B-matrix,.. you may be able to model or ioslate the potential causes, but this may not be readily available always.  

B. I would examine carefully some selected regions in the native data space (e.g. splenium CC, genu CC, caudate, putamen,..) as far as FA and mean diffusivity and tabulate the results for spatial hetrogeniety and consitency (e.g. FA(sCC) > FA(gCC)), before any strategy to correct the values is implemented. Look at the white and gray matter histograms, tissue segementation quality to see if at least the mean diffusivity is explained by a global scaling factor that can be corrected, but this scaling should not affect FA.

C. As far as normalization of DTI scalar maps, it has been routinely done (Camara et al., 2007; Snook et al., 2006) using the b0-object and the SPM-EPI-template as Traget and then FA as the other volume to be reslice, just be careful as suggested by Jones et al. (2005) as far as the selection of smoothing params.  

D. If the goal is to obtain "automated" volume-based estimates or parcellation. I would segment the T1w data (FSL-see Cherubini et al., 2009 or FreeSurfer- Fjell et al. 2008; Walimuni et al. 2011) or even DTI data (Hasan et al. 2007; Hasan et al., 2011a;2001b;2012) and then show the average in the anatomical labels.  This procedure shifts the analysis to the "standardized" labels in each subject native space. I applied this procedure after careful inspection and warping of DTI data unto T1w-labels on large cohorts of healthy controls and MS patients (Hasan et al., 2011; 2012)

Subject: [SPM] Normalize DTI studies from different scanners

Dear friends,

I'm trying to compare the changes in DTI in a case.
I have several studies from one subject, all of them have DTI, but I can't observe changes, probably because of the differences in the studies.
Some studies were made in Philips Achieva 1,5T and other in a GE HD 1,5T.
The good thing is that all studies have 33 directions.
But it's the only similarity.
Can I normalize these studies?
Thank you.

Lucas Lessa.
