Persistent angular structure (PAS) MRI is a method that recovers complex white matter fibre configurations within single voxels of high angular resolution diffusion MRI (HARDI) data. It continues to exhibit impressive performance in comparison to other state of the art methods, but at the expense of a longer computation time. Here, we introduce a reduced encoding representation that cuts this computation time to around a quarter of its original value, while retaining performance on synthetic data. Minor differences between the reduced and original encoding are observed in real brain data, but do not necessarily represent decreased performance.
