DTI and fiber tracking is a new and still developing discipline of MR post-processing. So far there is no commercial and easy extendable tool available. Therefore, most groups working on DTI have to develop their own tools in order to process and visualize their DTI datasets. This is very time consuming, needs know how and costs manpower. In addition, the results between studies and different groups are not comparable, since the used algorithms can differ in some details. In this abstract, a MATLAB based toolbox is introduced, containing GUI based tools for the whole working procedure of DTI and fiber tracking studies, containing data processing, visualization, evaluation, and documentation.
