As part of an ongoing effort to provide our published research code, we have released Anima v2.1 in March 2017. Anima is a set of ITK/VTK based libraries and multi-platform command line tools for medical image analysis. It contains software for image registration (linear and non linear block matching registration, EPI distortion correction), statistical analysis (group comparison, patient to group comparison), diffusion imaging (DTI and multi-compartment model estimation, tractography, etc.), quantitative MRI processing (quantitative relaxation times estimation, MR simulation), image denoising and filtering, and segmentation tools (Graph cut segmentation and multiple sclerosis lesion segmentation).
Among new things in v2.1 are the following:
- Added displacement field Jacobian tools
- Add BCH of order 2, 3, 4 for SVF composition approximation
- Improved multi-threading and bug corrections for tractography
- New registration-based Eddy current correction tool
- Bug corrections in symmetry tools (symmetry plane and symmetry constrained registration)
- Bug corrections for MCM estimation and averaging
- New transformation application, averaging tools and tractography for MCM (binary version)
- Other minor bug corrections
Anima is available as a Github repository and compiled binaries, including some non open-source tools, for various OSes (OSX, Fedora, Ubuntu, Windows).
