Utilities.

class sdcflows.interfaces.utils.ConvertWarp(from_file=None, resource_monitor=None, **inputs)[source]

Bases: nipype.interfaces.base.core.SimpleInterface

Convert a displacements field from 3dQwarp to ANTS-compatible.

Mandatory Inputs

in_file (a pathlike object or string representing an existing file) – Output of 3dQwarp.

Outputs

out_file (a pathlike object or string representing an existing file) – The warp converted into ANTs.

class sdcflows.interfaces.utils.DenoiseImage(**inputs)[source]

Bases: nipype.interfaces.ants.segmentation.DenoiseImage, nipype.interfaces.mixins.fixheader.CopyHeaderInterface

Wrapped executable: DenoiseImage.

Add copy_header capability to DenoiseImage from nipype.

Mandatory Inputs
  • input_image (a pathlike object or string representing an existing file) – A scalar image is expected as input for noise correction. Maps to a command-line argument: -i %s.

  • save_noise (a boolean) – True if the estimated noise should be saved to file. Mutually exclusive with inputs: noise_image. (Nipype default value: False)

Optional Inputs
  • args (a string) – Additional parameters to the command. Maps to a command-line argument: %s.

  • copy_header (a boolean) – Copy headers of the original image into the output (corrected) file. (Nipype default value: True)

  • dimension (2 or 3 or 4) – This option forces the image to be treated as a specified-dimensional image. If not specified, the program tries to infer the dimensionality from the input image. Maps to a command-line argument: -d %d.

  • environ (a dictionary with keys which are a bytes or None or a value of class ‘str’ and with values which are a bytes or None or a value of class ‘str’) – Environment variables. (Nipype default value: {})

  • noise_image (a pathlike object or string representing a file) – Filename for the estimated noise.

  • noise_model (‘Gaussian’ or ‘Rician’) – Employ a Rician or Gaussian noise model. Maps to a command-line argument: -n %s. (Nipype default value: Gaussian)

  • num_threads (an integer) – Number of ITK threads to use. (Nipype default value: 1)

  • output_image (a pathlike object or string representing a file) – The output consists of the noise corrected version of the input image. Maps to a command-line argument: -o %s.

  • shrink_factor (an integer) – Running noise correction on large images can be time consuming. To lessen computation time, the input image can be resampled. The shrink factor, specified as a single integer, describes this resampling. Shrink factor = 1 is the default. Maps to a command-line argument: -s %s. (Nipype default value: 1)

  • verbose (a boolean) – Verbose output. Maps to a command-line argument: -v.

Outputs
  • noise_image (a pathlike object or string representing a file)

  • output_image (a pathlike object or string representing an existing file)

class sdcflows.interfaces.utils.Deoblique(from_file=None, resource_monitor=None, **inputs)[source]

class sdcflows.interfaces.utils.PadSlices(from_file=None, resource_monitor=None, **inputs)[source]

Bases: nipype.interfaces.base.core.SimpleInterface

Check an image for uneven slices, and add an empty slice if necessary

This intends to avoid TOPUP’s segfault without changing the standard configuration

Mandatory Inputs

in_file (a pathlike object or string representing an existing file) – 3D or 4D NIfTI image.
