Measuring conductivity tensors provides an additional layer of information as to how tissues in the body conduct electric current. Tissues with anisotropic conductivity values may include white matter tracts and muscle. Measurement of the tensor requires the object to rotate with respect to the main magnetic field of the MRI scanner, but the degree of rotation is severely limited in human subjects. We propose a dictionary-based approach that provides an estimate of the tensor given small rotation angles of the object.
