1.9 Release


The 1.9 release is here --- osx and linux binaries are available and xp binaries will be coming soon. This release is a build-up to 2.0 which will feature much more functionality. Much of what will be in 2.0 is in 1.9 but may not be well documented. Major features will included validated segmentation methods and additional validation of brain extraction and registration approaches as well as full pipeline capabilities. Stay tuned.... read more

diffusion tensor and label/landmark-guided mapping!


the ANTS toolkit is expanding -- the new release:

enables diffusion tensor image warping.

enhances the website with clearer documentation

increases usability and performance for multivariate normalization scenarios, especially those that include labeled data or user-guided normalization.

label-guided normalization is a new frontier in image mapping that gives a best of both worlds result in terms of using both data driven terms and also human guidance where necessary.... read more
