Hi
    The DTI data I've got is from Siemens 3T MRI scanner, and the data it gives me is in DICOMDIR format, which contains a lot of series. I used A software called MiscroDICOM to open it, and there are several series,

Does anyone know which one I should use for VEP?

Thank you,
Barry

Hi


You would use the t1_mpr (and maybe the t2_spc)  for FreeSurfer and the ep2d_DTI for the diffusion part.  The important step is to check the sequence contains the gradient information, which can be done with mrinfo command from MRtrix3.


cheers,

Marmaduke

Hi

    When you say gradient information, does itmena like this. When I open the DTI of ep2d_DTI series, there are 62 figures with 1024 * 2014 size, and in each figure, there're 8*8=64 brains in it. Like this

And do you know some tools that would help me trnasfer the DICOMDIR file to DICOM format, the software I am using now can do this, but if I use mrinfo to see the info of the dcm file transfered from the MiscroDICOM viewer, it gives me error like this

hi


This would be the right series, but if MRtrix3 cannot read it, then you would need to find a converter to a format that it can read, perhaps nifti?


I can't help further, sorry, and please refrain from posting personal image data to the mailing list.


cheers,

Hi

  Got it! And I just converted that series to nii.gz format, and use mrinfo command, get this

Is this the right output?

Thank you

Hi

That looks good except you will need the gradient information in addition to the nifti image. Frequently this is provided in a FSL convention with two files bvecs and bvals. lease refer to MRtrix documentation for more information .

Cheers

Hi 

May I ask that how do you guys get the weight.txt, aka the weight matrix, with T1 MRI and DTI(T1 is a .nii.gz file, and DTI consisting of .nii.gz bvec bval)? I saw two repositories here https://github.com/the-virtual-brain/tvb-recon and https://github.com/ins-amu/scripts/tree/v0.4-CH. They all look working. And as to the Scripts, it has many tags, any recommendation? 

Thank you
Barry

Hi 

And is the parcellation optional, for I notice a new atlas called VEP-atlas

Thank you 
Barry

Hi all

I am using tvb-recon(https://github.com/the-virtual-brain/tvb-recon) docker image to get the weight.txt of structural  construction.

And I met this error:
