New layout and I moved

Since I did not post any updates in a long time, I decided to revamp the website at the same time. I also finished my master in between and now moved to the Netherlands for PhD studies. A bunch of stuff also happened, namely my first paper about denoising for diffusion datasets is out (and you can even try it out here).

One other interesting thing that came out is the results from the ISMRM 2015 tracking challenge. more ...


Our cool stuff for ISMRM 2015

Good morning Toronto!

We are finally at ISMRM 2015 after a 7 hours roadtrip to Toronto! Be sure to come see and chat up with the various members from the SCIL that are here with me. Expect us all for the results of the ISMRM tractography challenge on monday in room Constitution Hall 105 at 17h30, but feel free to also speak up with the various people wearing dipy shirts (made by Elef specifically for ISMRM and HBM this year). Also expect a ton of cool posters by us and a talk by JC about how to do group statistics on compressed fibers the proper way on friday session. My poster will be on how to get acquisition which are quality-wise the same as the Human Connectome Project (HCP) on any regular scanner in only 13 minutes, thanks to post-processing with denoising. And don't forget to make #SCIL #ismrm15 trending!

SPARC dMRI 2014 results

I have added the abstracts from the SPARC 2014 diffusion MRI challenge, hosted as a part of the MICCAI workshop on Computational Diffusion MRI (CDMRI 2014). We presented three abstracts, combining denoising with spherical deconvolution techniques, using the SHORE basis to reconstruct the signal and find peaks and also the Sparse Spherical Finite Rate of Innovation (SFRI), which is made to directly find peaks on the sphere. You can grab the abstracts here.

We will be at ISMRM 2014

It is with great pleasure that I hereby announce that we will be at the ISMRM 2014 in Milan, Italy. Our group has submitted some great abstracts and we have two oral presentations, two power poster sessions and two regular posters as well.

Be sure to come see our power poster sessions (which is new this year) and features a 2 minutes 30 seconds pitch selling about the poster, with a multimedia presentation on a big plasma screen afterward.

This offers the ability to discuss at length with the abstract's author while having a small oral presentation as well, something not always possible with the traditionnal oral presentations. I will present a new technique for denoising dMRI data based on self-similarity, redundancy and dictionary learning. Grab the abstract over here and be sure to come say hi!

Dipy 0.7.1 is out, Dipy paper also out

Hello everyone,

Haven't written anything in a fair bit of time, but worry not! There is a new release of Dipy with a lot of new examples. This release now contains the Constrained Spherical Deconvolution code in addition to new metrics and reconstruction methods.

The Dipy paper is also out now, in open access. Head over here to check it out.
