DIFF_PREP is a powerful and very flexible registration based motion and distortion correction software. Its flexibility comes from the options available in the "registration settings" file. The settings in this file let the user customize the behavior of the program according to his needs and to the user's data.
A sample registration settings file presented in the following pages. The settings displayed are tuned to be applicable to most cases. Therefore, you might not need to change any settings for most data. However, we strongly recommend the user to analyze the properties of the data, i.e. the presence of big rotations from the axial plane, noise levels, etc..., and customize the settings accordingly. The following pages describe each setting individually.
As explained in the Software Installation section, all the registration settings files should be stored in a folder called DIFF_PREP_WORK in the current user's home directory, with a .dmc extension.
