lipsia: Leipzig Image Processing and Statistical Inference Algorithms (LIPSIA)
lipsia - Leipzig Image Processing and Statistical Inference Algorithms
Lipsia is a software package for the data processing and evaluation of
functional magnetic resonance images. It was developed over the course
of several years at the Max-Planck-Institute for Human Cognitive and
Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany. The analysis of fMRI data
comprises various aspects including filtering, spatial transformation,
statistical evaluation as well as segmentation and visualization. All
these aspects are covered by Lipsia. For the statistical evaluation, a
number of well established and peer-reviewed algorithms were
implemented in Lipsia that allow an effcient and user-friendly
processing of fMRI data sets. As the amount of data that must be
handled is enormous, an important aspect in the development Lipsia was
the efficiency of the software implementation.
Lipsia currently operates exclusively on data in the VISTA data format.
However, the package contains converters for medical image data in
iBruker, ANALYZE and NIfTI format -- converting VISTA images into
NIfTI files is also supported.
Lipsia documentation and online help is provided by the lipsia-doc
package, and is accessible through the 'lipsia-help' command.
