We propose a novel q-space imaging method derived from the Fourier transform relationship between the MR signals and diffusion displacement probability density function. The method is featured by being independent of the q-space sampling schemes, such as high angular resolution images (HARDIs) and diffusion spectrum imaging (DSI) grid dataset. The accuracy of the method is examined in comparison with q-ball imaging (QBI) and DSI.
