Testing LESYMAP installation

dorianps edited this page Mar 16, 2019 · 6 revisions

LESYMAP is not a standalone package, it depends on ANTsR functions and other system software, which change from time to time. Occasionally these upstream changes cause anomalies in LESYMAP outputs. For this reason, you should always check the current LESYMAP installation with the following examples.

Before starting R, set the number of threads used by ITK at a low number.

export ITK_GLOBAL_DEFAULT_NUMBER_OF_THREADS=1

Run a mass-univariate example using Brunner-Munzel tests (~2 minutes)

library(LESYMAP)
lesydata = file.path(find.package('LESYMAP'),'extdata')
filenames = Sys.glob(file.path(lesydata, 'lesions', 'Subject*.nii.gz'))
behavior = Sys.glob(file.path(lesydata, 'behavior', 'behavior.txt'))

lsm = lesymap(filenames, behavior, method = 'BMfast')

template = antsImageRead(Sys.glob(file.path(lesydata, 'template', 'ch2.nii.gz')))
plot(template, lsm$stat.img)

Run a multivariate example using SCCAN (~7 minutes)

lesydata = file.path(find.package('LESYMAP'),'extdata')
filenames = Sys.glob(file.path(lesydata, 'lesions', 'Subject*.nii.gz'))
behavior = Sys.glob(file.path(lesydata, 'behavior', 'behavior.txt'))

lsm = lesymap(filenames, behavior, method = 'sccan', 
         sparseness=0.19, validateSparseness=FALSE)

template = antsImageRead(Sys.glob(file.path(lesydata, 'template', 'ch2.nii.gz')))
plot(template, lsm$stat.img)
