Finite pulse widths improve fibre orientation estimates in diffusion tensor MRI

We consider the effect of finite pulse widths on the directional concentration of principle eigenvectors of diffusion tensors acquired from simulations of random walkers on an isotropic substrate. We find that wider pulse widths lead to more reliable estimations of principle eigenvector orientation in the presence of noise.
