Module Description

This module is used for selecting a subset of DTI fiber tracts including or excluding certain fibers passing through a selected set of labels in the label map volume.

Use Cases

Most frequently used for these scenarios:

  • Use Case 1: Filter out a subset of DTI fiber tracts which are passing through selected region(s) defined in the label map volume.
  • Use Case 2: Filter out a subset of DTI fiber tracts which are NOT passing through selected region(s) defined in the label map volume.
  • Use Case 3: A combination of Case 1 and Case 2.

Panels and their use

A list of all the panels in the interface, their features, what they mean, and how to use them. For instance:

  • Parameters panel:
    • Parameters: select an existing setting for the module or create a new one.
  • IO panel:
    • Input Label Map: select an existing label map volume.
    • Input FiberBundle: Select the fibers that you want to filter.
    • Output FiberBundle: Select the bundle that you want to create or modify from a list.
  • Label Regions Definition panel :
    • Labels to include: A comma separated list of label values to include in the output fiber bundles set.
    • Fiducail Seeding Step Size: Step between the seeding samples in the box (mm).
    • Seed Selected Fiducials: Flag indicating whether to use only selected fiducials for seeding or all of them.
    • Maximum Number of Seeds: Used with models to specify the limit of the number of vertices to be used for seeding.
Fiducial Tractography Seeding
  • Label Map Options panel:
    • Use Index Space: if selected seed at IJK voxel grid
    • Seed Spacing: spacing in between seed points within in the labelmap (in mm), only matters if use Use Index Space is off.
    • Random Grid: use random placement.
    • Linear Measure Start Threshold: place seeds only if linear measure (cl) is above this threshold.
    • ROI Labels: a comma separated list of label to start seeding
    • Write Fibers to Disk: option to save the results to disk for further analysis.
    • Output Directory: path where the results are saved.
    • File Prefix Name: name that would be used for each output bundle.
Label Map Tractography Seeding
  • Tractography Seeding Parameters panel:
    • Minimum Path Length: Select only tracts that are longer than this value (mm).
    • Maximum Path Length: Select only tracts that are shorter than this value (mm).
    • Stopping Criteria: Select Linear Measure or FA to be used as stopping criteria.
    • Stopping Value: Select Linear Measure or FA stopping value, tracking will stop when the value drops below this one.
    • Stopping Track Curvature: Select the curvature stopping value in degree per mm, tracking will stop when the radius of curvature is smaller than this one.
  • Enabling Options panel:
    • Create Tracts Initially As: Select Tubes or Lines
