Diffusion tensor imaging and high angular resolution diffusion imaging are often used to analyze the fiber complexity of tissues. In these imaging techniques, the most commonly calculated metric is anisotropy, such as fractional anisotropy (FA), generalized anisotropy (GA), and generalized fractional anisotropy (GFA). The basic idea underlying these metrics(More)
Orientation distribution functions (ODFs) are widely used to resolve fiber crossing problems in high angular resolution diffusion imaging (HARDI). The characteristics of the ODFs are often assessed using a visual criterion, although the use of objective criteria is also reported, which are directly borrowed from classic signal and image processing theory(More)
Diffusion tensor magnetic resonance (DTMR) imaging and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) have been widely used to probe noninvasively biological tissue structures. However, DTI suffers from long acquisition times, which limit its practical and clinical applications. This paper proposes a new Compressed Sensing (CS) reconstruction method that employs joint(More)
Fiber tractography techniques in diffusion magnetic resonance imaging have become a primary tool for studying the fiber architecture of biological tissues both noninvasively and in vivo. Streamline tracking, as a simple and efficient tractography technique, is widely used to reconstruct fiber pathways. It is however very sensitive to noisy estimation of(More)
