## BrainSuite and the BrainSuite Diffusion Pipeline

BrainSuite is a collection of image analysis tools designed to process magnetic resonance images (MRI) of the human brain. BrainSuite13 provides an automatic sequence to extract cortical surface mesh models from the MRI, tools to register these to a labeled atlas to define anatomical regions of interest, and tools for processing diffusion imaging data (including distortion correction, coregistration to anatomical data, ODF and tensor fitting, and tractography). BrainSuite also contains visualization tools for exploring this kind of data, and can produce interactive maps of regional white matter connectivity. The software package includes an implementation of the Funk-Radon and Cosine Transform, distortion correction, and diffusion tensor estimation methods described respectively in:

The IMPATIENT MRI toolkit is an open-source CUDA-based GPU implementation of iterative MR image reconstruction. IMPATIENT MRI is very flexible, and enables efficient solution of MRI reconstruction problems involving non-Cartesian data acquisition, field inhomogeneity modeling, and regularization.
