Abstract : Diffusion tensor reconstruction is made possible through the acquisition of several diffusion weighted images, each corresponding to a given sampling direction in the Q-space. In this study, we address the question of sampling efficiency, and show that in case we have some prior knowledge on the diffusion characteristics, we may be able to adapt the sampling directions for better reconstruction of the diffusion tensor. The prior is a tensor distribution function, estimated over a given region of interest, possibly on several subjects. We formulate an energy related to error on tensor reconstruction, and calculate analytical gradient expression for efficient minimization. We validate our approach on a set of 5199 tensors taken within the corpus callosum of the human brain, and show improvement by an order of 10% on the MSE of the reconstructed tensor.
