MRtrix Software Package Has Over 8200 Downloads

MRtrix software package was developed at the Florey Austin for the processing of diffusion MRI, is widely used internationally and currently has over 8200 downloads. MRtrix forms the basis for a Siemens Work In Progress Package that is expected to be released shortly.

MRtrix includes a range of novel advanced methods such as Constrained spherical deconvolution (CSD), Anatomically Constrained Tracking (ACT), Spherical deconvolution Informed Tracking (SIFT), Apparent Fibre Density (AFD), and super-resolution Track Density Imaging (TDI), all of which has been developed at the Florey Austin VBIC node.

MRtrix forms the basis for a Siemens Work In Progress Package (i.e. a precursor to an expected Siemens software application package) that is currently under development and is expected to be released in the near future. This is aimed at enabling super-resolution TDI, and incorporates CSD based probabilistic fibre tracking.
