Tracking exclusivly in one hemisphere

Dear MRtrix-Community,

Using the MRtrix toolbox, would it be possible to restrict fiber tracking to ONE hemisphere only?

For example, if I would like to perform tracking and connectome generation only in the left unaffected hemisphere due to the presence of a large structural pathology in the right hemisphere.

I am aware that I could first generate a whole-brain structural connectome and then “delete” all values of connections that I am not interested in (i.e. hemisphere with structural pathology and inter-hemispheric connections). However I am not sure if that would generate similiar results to restricting connectome generation to one hemisphere only.

Any advice is appreciated!
