Automate your image analysis

PILFER is a collection of shell scripts to help automate the quantitative analysis of dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) for oncology applications. There is also additional functionality in advanced methods for parameter estimation and statistical inference. It will be released under the Pistoia Alliance and is therefore free to use under the [???] license.

Installation and Operation

PILFER depends on several pieces of open-source software in order to operate. The major dependency is dcemri, a collection of functions written in the R programming environment. Thus, dcemri depends on installing R (see link to CRAN to the right) onto your local system and also requires several R packages

  • bitops
  • MASS
  • minpack.lm
  • splines

Please see the installation guide for more details on getting PILFER up and running.
