dirmerge

Synopsis

Splice / merge multiple sets of directions in such a way as to maintain near-optimality upon truncation

Usage

dirmerge [ options ]  subsets bvalue files [ bvalue files ... ] out
  • subsets: the number of subsets (eg. phase encoding directions) per b-value
  • bvalue files: the b-value and sets of corresponding files, in order
  • out: the output directions file, with each row listing the X Y Z gradient directions, the b-value, and an index representing the phase encode direction

Options

  • -unipolar_weight set the weight given to the unipolar electrostatic repulsion model compared to the bipolar model (default: 0.2).

Standard options

  • -info display information messages.
  • -quiet do not display information messages or progress status; alternatively, this can be achieved by setting the MRTRIX_QUIET environment variable to a non-empty string.
  • -debug display debugging messages.
  • -force force overwrite of output files (caution: using the same file as input and output might cause unexpected behaviour).
  • -nthreads number use this number of threads in multi-threaded applications (set to 0 to disable multi-threading).
  • -config key value (multiple uses permitted) temporarily set the value of an MRtrix config file entry.
  • -help display this information page and exit.
  • -version display version information and exit.
