Magnetic Particle Imaging Files
MPIFiles.jl is a Julia package for handling files that are related to the tomographic imaging method magnetic particle imaging. It supports different file formats:
- Brukerfiles, i.e. files stored using the preclinical MPI scanner from Bruker
- Magnetic Particle Imaging Data Format (MDF) files
- IMT files, i.e. files created at the Institute of Medical Engineering in Lübeck
For all of these formats there is full support for reading the files. Write support is currently only available for MDF files. All files can be converted to MDF files using this capability.
MPIFiles.jl provides a generic interface for different MPI files. In turn it is possible to write generic algorithms that work for all supported file formats.
MPI files can be divided into three different categories
Each of these file types is supported and discussed in the referenced pages.
