We introduce a fibre tract segmentation algorithm based on the geometric coherence of fibre orientations as indicated by a streamline flow model. The inference of local flow approximations motivates a pairwise consistency measure between fibre ODF maxima. We use this measure in a recursive algorithm to cluster consistent ODF maxima, leading to the segmentation of white matter pathways. The method requires minimal seeding compared to streamline tractography-based methods, and allows multiple… CONTINUE READING
