DIPY workshop question
by Kern, Kyle (NIH/NINDS) [E]
I’m interested in the DIPY workshop but have a couple questions to decide if its right for me.
I’ve been using DTI in my research but primarily through software packages such as FSL, Diffusion toolkit, DTI studio.
I haven’t tried using DIPY or python for anything yet, but I’m comfortable with unix, FSL, and several other command line based neuroimaging tools.
But I’m primarily interested in learning more advanced reconstruction models including modeling free water and IVIM
1. Does the workshop focus primarily on using and troubleshooting DIPY’s available tools or is there an emphasis on the underlying theory?
2. Will my lack of baseline knowledge of DIPY and python be a hindrance? Should I work through some tutorials prior to the workshop, would that be enough to prepare me?
