Module Description

Allows the user to manipulate several different characteristics of the traced white matter tracts. Examples are: change of color; display of the fractional anisotropy along the tract; display of the tracts as tubes or lines; interactive selection of the tracts; and cropping.

Use Cases

Most frequently used for these scenarios:

  • Use Case 1: Change the scalar quantity displayed along the tract, like Fractional Anisotropy or Color By Orientation
  • Use Case 2: Display the tracts as lines or tubes
  • Use Case 3: Interactive selection or cropping of a certain bundle.
  • Use Case 4: Interactive editing (selecting/deleting) or cropping of a certain bundle.
