With diffusion tensor MRI one has access to the organization in space of tissue microstructural components. This outstanding potential adds, however, another layer of complexity to the diffusion MRI data acquisition and analysis processes. Over the last few years many articles have been published dealing with those matters. This special issue is thus timely to provide readers with the synthesis and the overall viewpoints from leading contributors to the field.
