Diffusion MRI enables the quantification of water diffusion, influenced by the structure of biological tissues. While recent advances enable to recover complex fiber geometries using diffusion measurements along various sampling schemes some older MR systems work with limited gradient tables ,designed for Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI).
