Abstract Endpoint-to-endpoint fibre bundle connectivity estimated using spherical deconvolution & streamlines tractography in diffusion MRI may be excessive in the presence of pathologies that involve truncation of axons within the white matter. Here we propose a simple modification to an existing method that directly quantifies and corrects for this over-estimation.
