This study has investigated the effects of the selection of the diffusion-weighted (DW) gradient directions on the precision of a diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) experiment. The theoretical analysis provided a quantitative framework in which the noise performance of DTI schemes could be assessed objectively and for the development of novel DTI schemes, which employ multiple DW gradient directions. This generic framework was first applied to the examination of two commonly used DTI schemes, which… CONTINUE READING
