We illustrate the problem with examples of established DTI techniques and new processing algorithms, producing generally arbitrary results. We then propose a new correlative technique, TDI, that provides a more practical approach to defining a suitable processing algorithm revealing 3D fiber structure, using more reliable manual rather than automated techniques. Realizing that validation still remains a stumbling block even with this approach, we also propose a revolutionary new technique, Nauti-DTI. Ultimately, our results do nothing to validate DTI itself, but we hope to show that although complex development of new DTI procedures is painful, ultimately this kind of research is a pleasure
