The method creates estimates of the fractional anisotropy (FA) and relative anisotropy (RA) indices, the main directions of anisotropy and several statistics used for visualization.
Object of class
Number of cores to use. Defaults to number of threads specified for openMP, see documentation of package awsMethods. Our experience suggests to use 4-6 cores if available.
