dipy_fit_dki

Usage

dipy_fit_dki [-h] [–b0_threshold float]

[–save_metrics [str [str …]]] [–out_dir str] [–out_dt_tensor str] [–out_fa str] [–out_ga str] [–out_rgb str] [–out_md str] [–out_ad str] [–out_rd str] [–out_mode str] [–out_evec str] [–out_eval str] [–out_dk_tensor str] [–out_mk str] [–out_ak str] [–out_rk str] input_files bvalues_files bvectors_files mask_files

Workflow for Diffusion Kurtosis reconstruction and for computing DKI metrics. Performs a DKI reconstruction on the files by ‘globing’ input_files and saves the DKI metrics in a directory specified by out_dir.

Positional Arguments

input_files Path to the input volumes. This path may contain wildcards to process multiple inputs at once. bvalues_files Path to the bvalues files. This path may contain wildcards to use multiple bvalues files at once. bvectors_files Path to the bvalues files. This path may contain wildcards to use multiple bvalues files at once. mask_files Path to the input masks. This path may contain wildcards to use multiple masks at once. (default: No mask used)

Optional Arguments

-h, --help

show this help message and exit

--b0_threshold float

Threshold used to find b=0 directions (default 0.0)

–save_metrics [str [str …]]

List of metrics to save. Possible values: fa, ga, rgb, md, ad, rd, mode, tensor, evec, eval (default [] (all))
