Key Investigators

  • BWH: Peter Savadjiev, Carl-Fredrik Westin


The long-term goal of this project is to integrate with Slicer4 the white matter geometry analysis tools described in

Peter Savadjiev, Yogesh Rathi, Sylvain Bouix, Ragini Verma, Carl-Fredrik Westin: Multi-scale Characterization of White Matter Tract Geometry. MICCAI (3) 2012: 34-41


Peter Savadjiev, Gordon L. Kindlmann, Sylvain Bouix, Martha Elizabeth Shenton, Carl-Fredrik Westin: Local white matter geometry from diffusion tensor gradients. NeuroImage 49(4): 3175-3186 (2010)

Approach, Plan

The plan is to integrate these algorithms as Python scripted extensions.


This project is still at an initial stage. The 2013 summer project week was very useful to learn about developing extensions for Slicer4.
