Module Description

This module is used for interactive seeding of DTI fiber tracts starting from a list of fiducials or vertices of a model.


  • Parameters: select an existing setting for the module or create a new one.
  • Select DTI volume: select an existing tensor volume.
  • Select FiducialList or Model: select an existing fiducial list or a model to be used as seeds for tracking.
  • Output FiberBundleNode : Select the bundle that you want to create or modify from a list.
  • Stopping Mode: 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.
  • Minimum Path Length: Select only tracts that are longer than this value (mm).
  • Fiducail Seeding Region Size: The size of the box around each fiducial used for seeding (mm).
  • 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.
  • Seed Tracks: Unable or disable seeding.
