Anisotropy measurements of 15 trabecular bone biopsies from the radius estimated by different fabric tensors on images acquired through cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and micro computed tomography (micro-CT) are compared. The results show that the generalized mean intercept length (MIL) tensor performs better than the global gray-scale structure tensor (GST), especially when the von Mises-Fisher kernel is applied. Also, the generalized MIL tensor yields consistent results between the two
