We are excited to announce our software release, called “Karawun” to the MRtrix community.
This software allows you to perform conversion of MRtrix tractography along with other Nifti files (e.g. brain and lesion mask, thresholded fMRI blobs…etc) to Brainlab navigation (iplan-cranial) compatible DICOM format. Thus enable intraoperative image guidance using tractography reconstructed from MRtrix.
We hope this tool can encourage research and clinical uptake of MRtrix and CSD-based tractography in the area of neursurgery/surgical image-guidance.
Please spread the words!
For those who are interested, “Karawun” is a grass used as a source of fibre by Aboriginal tribes in south-eastern Australia. We are adding an Aussie twist to the name…
