Source Code:


     DSI Studio has a very high turning rate, and occasionally the computation outcome may be different between versions. I would recommend users keep a local copy of DSI Studio for each research project and only update DSI Studio if a new project is initiated.

Hardware recommendation:

     You can use regular laptops or workstations to run DSI Studio. To achieve the best performance, I would recommend a computer with a multi-core CPU (e.g. Minimum memory of 2GB is needed. To handle a large number of tracks or image volumes, DSI Studio will need 32GB of memory or more. 

     GPU computation is not yet supported in DSI Studio.
