Here is what I am looking to answer:
We can guess there could be two ways of handling multi b0 images acquired every N number of directions in a DTI dataset
1. FSL may calculate the mean b0 image across all b0 images no matter the timing of b0 images, and use the mean b0 image for all diffusion encoded images to calculate diffusivity of each direction.
2. Or FSL use a single b0 images, which is closest to a certain diffusion encoded image. i.e. when the first and fourth images are b0, the second diffusion encoded image uses the first b0 whereas the fifth diffusion encoded image uses the fourth b0 image for diffusivity estimation.
I guess that 1 is the way how FSL handles multi b0 images in a DTI dataset, but I like to make sure it is the case.
Any help would be appreciated in answering this,

Sorry..., so just taking one b0 for nodiff it is enough?

Just make sure that your bvals file contains the same information.SaadOn 5 Apr 2013, at 20:16, S.K.
