Estimation of the cross-terms for all b-matrix elements with an isotropic phantom

Accurate DTI calculations require exactly b-matrix calculations, taking into account all diffusion weighting (DW) and imaging gradients. However a routine user mostly has no exact information on pulse sequence details. In such a case cross terms between imaging and DW gradients are ignored and the b-matrix is approximated from the diffusion encoding direction and the
