cmind.pipeline.cmind_alpha.cmind_alpha(output_dir, alpha_complex_nii, generate_figures=True, ForceUpdate=False, verbose=False, logger=None)[source]

ASL labeling efficiency estimation


output_dir : str

directory to store output

alpha_complex_nii : str

filename to the complex alpha .nii.gz volume

generate_figures : bool, optional

if true, generate additional summary images

ForceUpdate : bool,optional

if True, rerun and overwrite any previously existing results

verbose : bool, optional

print additional output (to terminal and log)

logger : logging.Logger or str, optional

logging.Logger object (or string of a filename to log to)


alpha_fname : str

text file containing the computed alpha value

alpha : float

alpha value


primary output is myalpha.txt, containing the computed inversion efficiency

additional output:
