Dear Mrtrix experts,
I tracked between seed and target regions and I would like to remove outliers from the tract of interest. I would like to remove the fibers whose position deviates more than X standard deviations from the core of the fiber tract, as done in Yeatman et al., 2012*.
My initial thought was to read the positions using read_mrtrix_tracks.m in matlab and clean the data from there, but I realized that I cannot import the cleaned data back to a .tck format in order to continue working in mrtrix. Do you have any suggestion?
Thank you very much for your help!
