Extension Description

DTIProcess is a DTI processing and analysis toolkit developed in UNC and University of Utah. Tools in this toolkit include:

  • dtiestim (in Diffusion/Diffusion Weighted Images): tool that takes in a set of DWIs in nrrd format and estimates a tensor field out of it. It also has many useful options.
  • dtiprocess (in Diffusion/Diffusion Tensor Images): tool that handles tensor fields
  • dtiaverage (in Diffusion/Diffusion Tensor Images/CommandLineOnly): program that allows to compute the average of an arbitrary number of tensor fields. This tools should be used in a command line.
  • fiberprocess (in Diffusion/Tractography): tool that manage fiber files extracted from the fibertrack tool or any fiber tracking algorithm
  • fiberstats (in Diffusion/Tractography/CommandLineOnly): program that prints out some statistics computed on a fiber bundle. This tools should be used in a command line.


  • maxcurvature, scalartransform and fibertrack are not packaged anymore as part of the DTIProcess Slicer extension. Those tools are not maintained anymore.
