Tools overview

Mint Labs provides advanced neuroimaging analytics tools including widely known open source & licensed tools as well as our proprietary algorithms.

Open Source

freesurfer

FreeSurfer

FreeSurfer is "an open source software suite for processing and analyzing (human) brain MRI images". It is used on the platform for:
  • Cortical segmentation
  • Cortical reconstruction
 
ANTs

ANTs

ANTs (Advanced Normalization Tools) is used to compute high-dimensional mappings to capture the statistics of brain structure and function. It offers:
  • Image registration
  • Image segmentation
  • Morphological and mathematical operations
  • Structural MRI
  • Bias field correction
  • Thickness: DiReCT
MRtrix

MRtrix

"MRtrix3 provides a set of tools to perform various types of diffusion MRI analyses, from various forms of tractography through to next-generation group-level analyses." It is used on the platform for:
  • Diffusion processing
  • White matter tractography
  • Constrained spherical deconvolution

Licensed tools

sienax

FSL

"FSL is a comprehensive library of analysis tools for FMRI, MRI and DTI brain imaging data." The tools used on the platform are:
  • FLIRT
  • BET
  • FAST
  • SIENAX & SIENA
  • EDDY
  • FUGUE
  • MCFLIRT

Proprietary tools

thickness

Morphology

  • From high-resolution, 3D, T1-weighted, non-contrast-enhanced MRI scan, Morphology tool identifies and segments brain tissue (grey matter, white matter) and multiple brain structures (atlas based).
  • With no user intervention, it provides the cortical thickness volume along with a report (.csv) of the average and standard deviation of the thickness per different structure.
volumetry

Volumetry

  • From high-resolution, 3D, T1-weighted, non-contrast-enhanced MRI scan, Volumetry tool identifies and segments brain tissue (grey matter, white matter, deep brain structures) and multiple brain structures (atlas based).
  • With no user intervention, it provides an automatically labeled dataset, along with report (.csv) of the absolute volumes of the different tissues and different structures.
FA maps

FA maps

  • From diffusion MRI files (DWI), the tool estimates tensor field (DTI).
  • With no user intervention, it provides a DTI map (tensors), a fractional anisotropy map (FA map), and a FA map weighted by principal direction.
tractography

Tractography

  • From diffusion MRI files (DWI), either DTI or HARDI sequences, it automatically estimates tensor or ODF fields.
  • With no user intervention, the tool provides a 3D tractography map.
     
connectome

Advanced Structural Connectome

  • Combining 3D, T1-weighted, and diffusion MRI files (DWI), it computes an automated cortical parcellation with 3D tractography in order to get a network description of the wiring of the brain.
  • With no user intervention, the tool provides a connectome (matrix) with several connectivity measures (number fibres, average FA, average fiber length, ...)
