Image postprocessing and analysis is often an important part of the image reconstruction process, especially in quantitative MR imaging. This step is usually performed in a research environment by exporting images to a separate desktop computer and using commercial software packages. In this work, we present a simplified framework based on an open source scripting engine (Lua) that integrates in the scanner reconstruction pipeline, and allows simple and fast deployment of postprocessing and analysis programs.
