DTI Fiber Tract Statistics
What is it?
This is a software which allows the user to study the behavior of water diffusion (using DTI data) along the length of the white matter fiber-tracts. Various tract-oriented scalar diffusion measures obtained from DTI brain images, are treated as a continuous function of white matter fibers' arc-length. To analyze the trend along a given fiber tract, a command line tool performs kernel regression on this data. The idea is to try out different noise models and maximum likelihood estimates within kernel windows (along the tract), such that they best represent the data and are robust to noise and Partial Volume effect.
The package contains several command line based modules and an GUI based tool called DTIAtlasFiberAnalyzer to access most functions.
This package is also available as a 3D Slicer extension (http://www.slicer.org) called DTIAtlasFiberAnalyzer.
Some documentation about the features available in this package are available here: http://www.na-mic.org/Wiki/index.php/Projects:dtistatisticsfibers

Building from source
Building using Qt5 is recommended. This version has been build with Qt5.5.1 but it may work with newer version. You can download Qt5 from here
Clone this repository and build
git clone https://github.com/NIRALUser/DTIFiberTractStatistics.git mkdir DTIFiberTractStatistics-build cd DTIFiberTractStatistics-build cmake -DUSE_QT4:BOOL=OFF -DQt5_DIR:PATH=/your/install/directory/Qt5.5.1/lib/cmake/Qt5 ../DTIFiberTractStatistics
If you want to build FADTTS you should use the following settings
cmake -DUSE_QT4:BOOL=OFF -DBUILD_FADTTS:BOOL=ON -DQt5_DIR:PATH=/your/install/directory/Qt5.5.1/lib/cmake/Qt5 ../DTIFiberTractStatistics
