We propose a diffusion acquisition scheme, called “nested cubes”, consisting of five triplets of three unique mutually orthogonal directions, providing diffusion weighted data sampled across fifteen noncollinear directions distributed uniformly across a spherical shell. Data acquired using this setup facilitates the simultaneous acquisition of dynamic maps of trace and other diffusion metrics while producing DTI measurements comparable to those from a standard DTI sequence.
