Q-ball imaging provides insights into aspects of brain structure in living humans that could not be studied previously. The lack of standardized and extensible software tools for I/O, reconstruction, interactive visualization, and statistics impedes development and sustainable evaluation. The diffusion imaging component of the Medical Imaging Interaction Framework (MITK-DI) aims at supporting cutting edge diffusion imaging techniques and, in contrast to most other frameworks, addresses all aspects of application design including full integration into an application platform and fluent workflows. MITK-DI therefore allows covering the complete cycle from raw-data to post processing and statistics.
