MRtrix3 workshop - September 9-13, 2019

We are very excited to announce that the second official MRtrix3 workshop will be held this year in Antwerp, Belgium (September 9-13, 2019).

MRtrix3 provides a set of tools to perform various types of diffusion MRI analyses, from various forms of tractography through to next-generation group-level analyses. It is designed with consistency, performance, and stability in mind, and is freely available under an open-source license. It is developed and maintained by a team of experts in the field, fostering an active community of users from diverse backgrounds.

This 4½ day hands-on workshop will cover the theory and practice of diffusion analysis, covering the range of techniques available within MRtrix3.

Participants will each be provided with a laptop, pre-installed with the relevant software and data. Participants that wish to bring their own laptops or data are of course welcome to do so, and we will do our best to accommodate them.

After completing this MRtrix3 course, participants should be able to process, analyze, and visualize their own diffusion MRI data sets using MRtrix3 tools.

This course is aimed at both new and existing users of MRtrix3, covering basic functionality as well as the latest analysis methods. The topics covered are intended for researchers in basic science and/or clinical research.
