Diffusion tractography allows the investigation of white matter (WM) pathways of interest. However, to cover the full spatial extent of the desired bundles, tractography requires a large amount of streamlines (millions) to be generated. In this work, we developed a bundle-specific tractography algorithm using voxel-wise orientation priors. Our method aims to be more efficient than a classical whole brain tractography and increase the quality of virtual WM dissection.
