Analysing Diffusion Tensor Images (DTI) require some specific tools to

  • Quality control Diffusion Weighted Images (DTIPrep)
  • Provide tools to compute and process DTI (DTIProcess)
  • Create an average DTI image from a set of images (DTIAtlasBuilder)
  • Visualize and edit tracted fibers (FiberViewerLight)
  • Analyze tracts (DTIAtlasFiberAnalyzer)

The goal of this project is to develop Slicer4 extensions providing those tools and verify that they correctly perform on all available platforms.

Approach, Plan

  • Understand and fixing the libraries issue on MacOS
  • Create launchers to start modules with Qt GUI on Windows
  • Correct and update packaging process


The Slicer extensions are available at : https://github.com/Slicer/ExtensionsIndex

  • FiberViewerLight runs on Windows thanks to its launcher.
  • A launcher has been created for DTIAtlasFiberAnalyzer. Packaging issues still have to be corrected
  • DTIPrep runs on Windows. Packaging issues
  • Libraries issues on MacOS have been fixed in Slicer scripts, but not everything works yet.
  • DTIProcess now works well on MacOS and Slicer4Extension branch has been merged into the trunk
