...to the site of vIST/e, a research tool for Diffusion Tensor Imaging and HARDI developed at the Eindhoven University of Technology.


vIST/e is an open source tool, formerly known as DTITool, and developed primarily by the Biomedical Image Analysis Group led by Anna Vilanova of the Eindhoven University of Technology in The Netherlands. It is a powerful, platform-independent software solution for the visualization and analysis of complex, high-dimensional imaging data such as Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) and High Angular Resolution Diffusion Imaging (HARDI). Software development and mainentance of the vIST/e core framework is done by decidated developers employed by Imaging, Science and Technology Eindhoven (IST/e), an TU/e organisation that brings together all imaging-related research from various TU/e faculties such as Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science. vIST/e has a plugin-based architecture which allows third parties to develop new plugins to extend the tool. At the TU/e we have a team of academic researchers and students who regularly add new plugins to the vIST/e framework.


An overview of the many features of vIST/e is given below.


You can find documentation about vIST/e, such as installation instructions, build instructions and tutorials in the SourceForge WIKI pages.


vIST/e installers and binaries can be downloaded here from SourceForge.net.

Source Code

The vIST/e open source code is under BSD style license
vIST/e is hosted at BerliOS Developer instead of SourceForge.net. BerliOS offers greater flexibility, especially with respect to access permissions to the source code repository. The main trunk directory is accessible to everyone. However, there are also private branches where TU/e developers (staff and students) are working on code that is still unpublished or is developed in collaboration with 3rd parties. For any kind of questions and comments please mail to vIST/e Team.

You can find instructions about how to obtain the vIST/e source code in the SourceForge WIKI pages. The procedure is explained in the tutorials about building vIST/e from source. You are well come for any kind o
