White Matter Fiber Tracking from Human Brain DT-MRI Data
In this paper we develop a new technique for tracing anatomical white mater fibers from 3D diffusion tensor fields. The technique extracts salient tensor features using a local regularizing technique that allows the algorithm to cross noisy regions and bridge gaps in the data. We applied the method to human brain diffusion tensor DT-MRI data and recovered identifiable anatomical structures that correspond to the white matter brain-fiber pathways. The images in this paper are derived from a dataset having 121 x 88 x 60 resolution
