Tensor fields specifically, matrix valued data sets, have recently attracted increased attention in the fields of image processing, computer vision, visualization and medical imaging. In this paper, we present a novel definition of tensor "distance" grounded in concepts from information theory and incorporate it in the segmentation of tensor-valued images.(More)
In recent years, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has become a popular in vivo diagnostic imaging technique in Radiological sciences. In order for this imaging technique to be more effective, proper image analysis techniques suited for analyzing these high dimensional data need to be developed. In this paper, we present a novel definition of tensor "distance"(More)
In this paper, we present a novel constrained variational principle for simultaneous smoothing and estimation of the diffusion tensor field from complex valued diffusion-weighted images (DWI). The constrained variational principle involves the minimization of a regularization term of L(P) norms, subject to a nonlinear inequality constraint on the data. The(More)
In this paper, we present a novel constrained variational principle for simultaneous smoothing and estimation of the diffusion tensor field from diffusion weighted imaging (DWI). The constrained variational principle involves the minimization of a regularization term in an LP norm, subject to a nonlinear inequality constraint on the data. The data term we(More)
Diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging (DT-MRI) is a relatively new imaging modality in the field of medical imaging. This modality of imaging allows one to capture the structural connectivity if any between functionally meaningful regions for example, in the brain. The data however can be noisy and requires restoration. In this paper, we present a(More)
