Module Description

Utility for conversion of Slicer-style VTK tractography to DICOM TrackSet.

Use Cases

Most frequently used for these scenarios:

  • Use Case 1: Save DICOM format tractography files in 3D Slicer.
  • Use Case 2: Convert vtk format tractography files to DICOM format on the command line.

Both use cases require a reference diffusion-weighted MRI DICOM scan. The reference scan must be the DICOM data from which the tractography was created.
