dti-package: Analysis of diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) data

Description Details Author(s) References Examples

Description

Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI) is a Magnetic Resonance Imaging modality, that measures diffusion of water in tissues like the human brain. The package contains R-functions to process diffusion-weighted data. The functionality includes diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI), modeling for high angular resolution diffusion weighted imaging (HARDI) using Q-ball-reconstruction and tensor mixture models, several methods for structural adaptive smoothing including POAS and msPOAS, and a streamline fiber tracking for tensor and tensor mixture models. The package provides functionality to manipulate and visualize results in 2D and 3D.
