DSI Studio is a tractography software tool that maps brain connections and correlates findings with neuropsychological disorders. It is a collective implementation of several diffusion MRI methods, including diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), generalized q-sampling imaging (GQI), q-space diffeomorphic reconstruction (QSDR), diffusion MRI connectometry, and generalized deterministic fiber tracking.

Usage on Pitzer
module load dsi-studio. The default version will be loaded. To select a particular version, use
module load dsi-studio/version. For example, use
module load dsi-studio/2021.May to load DSI Studio 2.0. It is also recommended you use in conjunction with
module load singularity.
DSI Studio is installed in a singularity container.
DSI_IMG environment variable contains the container image file path. So, an example usage would be
module load dsi-studio singularity exec $DSI_IMG dsi_studio
This command will open the DSI Studio GUI environment, and we recommend Ondemand VDI or Desktop for GUI.
