Quantifying White Matter Microstructure with a Unified Spatio-Temporal Diffusion Weighted MRI Continuous Representation

Abstract

A current problem Diffusion MRI (dMRI) based microscopy under the narrow pulse approximation is how to best exploit the 4D (q-space + diffusion time) nature of the signal. Assaf et al. showed that exploring the dMRI attenuation at different diffusion times provides information on the distribution of axonal diameters within a voxel in their seminal work: AxCaliber. However, AxCaliber requires knowing beforehand the predominant orientation of the axons within the analyzed volume to adjust the q-space sampling accordingly. In this work, we show that our novel sparse representation of the 3D+t dMRI signal, enables the recovery of axonal diameter distribution parameters without the need to know the axonal direction at acquisition time.
