Dipy / Diffusion Imaging in Python

Allows to study diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) data. Dipy is a program allowing users to share their code and experiments. One of its objectives is to provide transparent implementations for all the different steps of the dMRI analysis with a uniform programming interface. It implements two interfaces for probabilistic Markov fiber tracking: (1) it allows the user to provide the distribution evaluated on a discrete set of possible tracking directions, and (2) it accommodates tracking methods where the fiber orientation distribution function (fODF) cannot be easily computed.

MANTiS / Morphologically Adaptive Neonatal Tissue Segmentation

Extends the unified segmentation approach to tissue classification implemented in Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM) software to neonates. MANTiS utilizes a combination of unified segmentation, template adaptation via morphological segmentation tools and topological filtering, to segment the neonatal brain into eight tissue classes: cortical gray matter, white matter, deep nuclear gray matter, cerebellum, brainstem, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), hippocampus and amygdala. It is able to segment neonatal brain tissues well, even in images that have brain abnormalities common in preterm infants.

ANTs / Advanced Normalization Tools

Computes high-dimensional mappings to capture the statistics of brain structure and function. ANTs allows users to organize, visualize and statistically explore large biomedical image sets. It integrates imaging modalities and related information in space and time, and works across species or organ systems with minimal customization. ANTs depends on the Insight ToolKit (ITK), a widely used medical image processing library to which ANTs developers contribute. ANTs can be used paired with ANTsR, an emerging tool supporting standardized multimodality image analysis. ANTs is popularly considered a state-of-the-art medical image registration and segmentation toolkit.


Allows the analysis and visualization of structural and functional neuroimaging data from cross-sectional or longitudinal studies. FreeSurfer proposes a suite of tools that provide extensive and automated analysis of key features in the human brain. This includes skull stripping, image registration, subcortical segmentation, cortical surface reconstruction, cortical segmentation, cortical thickness estimation, longitudinal processing, fMRI analysis, tractography, FreeView Visualization GUI, etc... FreeSurfer is freely available, runs on a wide variety of hardware and software platforms, and is open source.

NMT / National Institute of Mental Health Macaque Template

Provides a high-resolution in vivo magnetic resonance imaging template of the average macaque brain generated from 31 subjects, as well as a neuroimaging tool for improved data analysis and visualization. From the NMT volume, maps of tissue segmentation and cortical thickness were generated. Surface reconstructions and transformations to previously published digital brain atlases are also provided. An analysis pipeline using the NMT automates and standardizes the time-consuming processes of brain extraction, tissue segmentation, and morphometric feature estimation for anatomical scans of individual subjects. The NMT and associated tools thus provide a common platform for precise single-subject data analysis and for characterizations of neuroimaging results across subjects and studies.


Provides a free volume (3D image) viewer and segmentation tool. BrainSeg3D is a graphic application that make segmentation of volumes more accurate by providing tools for semi-automated segmentation combined with a user friendly graphic interface. This application is based on Seg3D, a free volume segmentation and processing tool. It was developed for medical professionals who need to perform image analysis as part of their research or for researchers working in the field of image analysis.

Simpleware ScanIP

Provides a software environment for comprehensively processing 3D image data (MRI, CT, micro-CT, FIB-SEM…). Simpleware ScanIP offers powerful image visualisation, analysis, segmentation, and quantification tools. It includes video recording features and options to export surface models/meshes from segmented data for CAD and 3D printing. Additional modules are available for exporting CAE meshes, integrating image data and CAD, exporting NURBS and calculating effective material properties from scans.

ITK / Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit

Allows to perform registration and segmentation for image analysis. Segmentation is the process of identifying and classifying data found in a digitally sampled representation. ITK uses a model of software development known as Extreme Programming. The sampled representation is an image acquired from such medical instrumentation as Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or ultrasound scanners. Registration is the task of aligning or developing correspondences between data. For example, in the medical environment, a CT scan may be aligned with a MRI scan in order to combine the information contained in both.
