ODIN iconODIN 1.8.7

Free software framework for rapid prototyping of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences in a handy graphical user interface (GUI)
Looking for the Odin Samsung firmware flashing utility? On Mac OS, it's called Heimdall.

ODIN is a handy, powerful C++ software framework that can help you develop, simulate and run magnetic resonance sequences on different platforms.

ODIN is:
State-of-the-Art: It includes sequence modules for echo-planar imaging and spiral-imaging, parallel imaging with GRAPPA reconstruction, two-dimensional pulses and field-map-based distortion corrections.

Easy-to-Use: All common steps, from compiling your sequence to plotting or simulating it, can be performed within a graphical user interface.

Supported Image/Data Formats:
· GNU-Zip container for other formats
· Iris3D binary data
· JCAMP-DX data sets
· JCAMP-DX image format
· Matlab ascii 2D data matrix
· MetaImage
· NIFTI/ANALYZE, dialects: fsl
· PNG image writer
· Vista, dialects: common odin lipsia xlipsia
· Visualization Toolkit
· double raw data
· float raw data
· signed 16 bit raw data
· signed 32 bit raw data
· signed 8 bit raw data
· unsigned 16 bit raw data
· unsigned 32 bit raw data
· unsigned 8 bit raw data
· x-y positions of non-zeroes in ASCII

NOTE: Installation instructions for Mac OS X can be found in the INSTALL.TXT file inside the archive.

Main features:

  • Plotting of the sequence timecourse in a graphical user interface.
  • Simulating the spin-physics of the sequence (Bloch-Torrey equations) using a virtual phantom to generate a virtual MR signal. System imperfections (eddy currents, B1 inhomogeneity, noise) can be switched on/off at will during the simulation.
  • Visualization of the k-space trajectory.
  • Calculation of gradient moments (k-space) and diffusion weighting.
