We present a new method for estimating and recovering the intra-voxel fiber paths, using Diffusion Weighted Magnetic Resonance Images (DW-MRI). The method recovers the intra-voxel information at voxels that contain fiber crossings or bifurcations by means of a combination of a known tensor basis functions (a "multi-tensor" field). In contrast with the state-of-the art methods, our formulation requires a small number of DWMR images and the solution schema is simple. Another advantage is that the… CONTINUE READING
