The independent component analysis (ICA) tractography method has improved the ability to isolate intravoxel crossing fibers; however, the accuracy of ICA is limited in cases with voxels in local clusters lacking sufficient numbers of fibers with the same orientations. To overcome this limitation, the ICA was combined with a ball-stick model (BSM) ["ICA+BSM"]. An ICA approach is applied to identify crossing fiber components in voxels of small cluster, which are maximally independent in… CONTINUE READING
