In this study, we proposed a method for characterizing intravoxel spatial distribution of diffusion by using texture analysis with GLCM (gray level cooccurrence matrix) from single-shell diffusion MRI data, which can be acquired in practical scan time. Since the method does not assume a diffusion distribution model, unstable calculation such as fitting process is not required. The method could provide novel diagnostic indices of diffusion MRI without additional acquisition.
