DIRAC is a collection of tools for rapid and robust processing of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) data. Programs are included for both diffusion tensor and HARDI reconstruction and analysis.
DescriptionDWIDataPacker: Combines an entire diffusion-weighted data set into a single MiND-formatted NIfTI file for input to all subsequent modules.
InstallationPipeline modules/workflows - extract to a convenient location and open with the LONI Pipeline.
Processing of diffusion-weighted data sets is a complex task. DIRAC simplifies DWI analysis by requiring a minimal number of user-defined parameters for computation. Furthermore, DIRAC avoids the "vendor lock-in" issue common to monolithic software solutions by providing intermediate results to the user, allowing for processing using external tools if desired.
