We study a well-known scalar quantity in differential geometry, the Ricci scalar, in the context of Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI). We explore the relation between the Ricci scalar and the two most popular scalar measures in DTI: Mean Diffusivity and Fractional Anisotropy. We discuss results of computing the Ricci scalar on synthetic as well as real DTI data.
