Obtained the axon diameter distribution (ADD) for fascicles in any orientation, anywhere within a brain volume, is based on estimate of an average propagator in each voxel using a 3-D generalization that determines the direction of maximum diffusivity and then estimates the DW signal attenuation profile.
