Module Description

Program title MaxCurvature-Hessian
Program description This program computes the Hessian of the FA image (--image). We use this scalar image as a registration input when doing DTI atlas building. For most adult FA we use a sigma of 2 whereas for neonate or primate images and sigma of 1 or 1.5 is more appropriate. For really noisy images, 2.5 - 4 can be considered. The final image (--output) shows the main feature of the input image.

Hans Johnson(1,3,4); Kent Williams(1); (1=University of Iowa Department of Psychiatry, 3=University of Iowa Department of Biomedical Engineering, 4=University of Iowa Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering) provided conversions to make DTIProcess compatible with Slicer execution, and simplified the stand-alone build requirements by removing the dependancies on boost and a fortran compiler.
