Abstract: Diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI) is a new model in medical engineering, where a diffusion kurtosis (DK) tensor is involved. A DK tensor is a fourth-order three-dimensional fully symmetric tensor. In this paper, we introduce D-eigenvalues for a DK tensor. The largest, the smallest and the average D-eigenvalues of a DK tensor correspond with the largest, the smallest and the average apparent kurtosis coefficients (AKC) of a water molecule in the space, respectively. We present their computational methods and discuss related anisotropy value of AKC.
