Bases: CommandLine

Wrapped executable: petpvc.

Use PETPVC for partial volume correction of PET images.

PETPVC (1, 2) is a software from the Nuclear Medicine Department of the UCL University Hospital, London, UK.

Examples

>>> from ..testing import example_data
>>> #TODO get data for PETPVC
>>> pvc = PETPVC()
>>> pvc.inputs.in_file   = 'pet.nii.gz'
>>> pvc.inputs.mask_file = 'tissues.nii.gz'
>>> pvc.inputs.out_file  = 'pet_pvc_rbv.nii.gz'
>>> pvc.inputs.pvc = 'RBV'
>>> pvc.inputs.fwhm_x = 2.0
>>> pvc.inputs.fwhm_y = 2.0
>>> pvc.inputs.fwhm_z = 2.0
>>> outs = pvc.run()
