The aim of this study was to provide a comprehensive description of whole heart in-vivo myocardial fiber architecture using the fiber architecture matrix, and to validate results using ex-vivo and simulated data. We showed that whole heart fiber architecture described by the FAM can be obtained from in-vivo DWI. However, compared to ex-vivo data the direction of ε2 and ε3 are exchanged.
