MultiTracer is a Java application that allows images to be displayed in three dimensions. The tool allows anatomic structures to be traced and the tracings to be saved in a format that facilitates review and revision.Visit MultiTracer Website
DescriptionMultiTracer is a java-based tool that is useful for manual editing of MRI images in a variety of formats. Such editing is a prerequisite for most intersubject registration tools that can be used to create volume deformation parameters. In addition, the tool also allows manually delineated contours to be traced as used by the surface parameterization project. This tool is being used for landmark delineation in a variety of projects.
InstallationThe tracer application is contained in a file called 'Tracer.jar'. The application must be launches as an application (i.e., it cannot be used inside a web browser). The method for launching the application depends on the type of computer:
MultiTracer is a Java application that allows images to be displayed in three dimensions. The tool allows anatomic structures to be traced and the tracings to be saved in a format that facilitates review and revision. The traced structures can also be exported in the UCF format that is used by many of the tools in the UCLA Laboratory of Neuroimaging. These include tools for simple measurements (e.g., areas, volumes, lengths, width, surface areas, etc.) as well as tools that resample the tracings into surface meshes that can be analyzed and displayed.
