Abstract

In this paper, we propose an efficient framework for parcellation of white matter tractograms using discriminative dictionary learning. Key to our framework is the learning of a compact dictionary for each fiber bundle so that the streamlines within the bundle can be sufficiently represented. Dictionaries for multiple bundles are combined for whole-brain tractogram representation. These dictionaries are learned jointly to encourage inter-bundle incoherence for discriminative power. The proposed method allows tractograms to be assigned to more than one bundle, catering to scenarios where tractograms cannot be clearly separated. Experiments on a bundle-labeled HCP dataset and an infant dataset highlight the ability of our framework in grouping streamlines into anatomically plausible bundles.
