sh2response

Synopsis

Generate an appropriate response function from the image data for spherical deconvolution

Usage

sh2response [ options ]  SH mask directions response
  • SH: the spherical harmonic decomposition of the diffusion-weighted images
  • mask: the mask containing the voxels from which to estimate the response function
  • directions: a 4D image containing the direction vectors along which to estimate the response function
  • response: the output axially-symmetric spherical harmonic coefficients

Description

The spherical harmonic coefficients are stored according the conventions described the main documentation, which can be found at the following link: https://mrtrix.readthedocs.io/en/3.0_RC3/concepts/spherical_harmonics.html

Options

  • -lmax value specify the maximum harmonic degree of the response function to estimate
  • -dump file dump the m=0 SH coefficients from all voxels in the mask to the output file, rather than their mean

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.
