DSI Studio Cloud

DSI Studio Cloud is a GitHub repository that uses GitHub’s cloud computing resource to analyze diffusion MRI data. It can construct tractography and analyze its diffusion and shape metrics. The code can be extended to accomplish any command line functions provided in DSI Studio.

DSI Studio Cloud makes uses of the GitHub-hosted runner, a virtual machine hosted by GitHub, to process dMRI data. The GitHub-Action scripts in the DSI Studio Cloud get data from OpenNeuro to the GitHub runners and processe them using DSI Studio.




Examples Dataset


The DSI Studio Cloud pipeline includes preprocessing (eddy correction and align ac-pc), quality check, automatic fiber tracking, region-based analysis, and connectivity matrix. image


  1. Fork the repository: Click on the Fork button in the upper right corner.

  1. Enable Actions: Click on the Actions menu and confirm I understand my workflows, go ahead and enable them.

  1. Run Actions: Under the same Actions menu, click on Auto-Track (OpenNeuro) on the left and click run workflow on the right.

Setup Parameters:

Parameters Descriptions
OpenNeuro Accession Number the DS number of the OpenNeuro data. (e.g. ds001378)
Preprocessing: Eddy Correction specify whether to correct DWI data using FSL eddy.
Preprocessing: Align AC-PC specify whether to resample DWI to align ac-pc.
Pipeline: Region Analysis the region analysis pipeline calculates the averages value of metrics in the atlas regions.
Pipeline: Connectivity Matrix the connectivity matrix pipeline calculates the whole-brain connectivity matrix using the atlas parcellations.
Pipeline: Automatic Fiber Tracking the automatic fiber tracking pipeline maps tracts of interests and calculates their diffusion and shape metrics.
Options: Atlases specify the atlases to be used in region analysis or connectivity matrix. Full list of atlases
Options: Tracts of Interest specify the tracts to be mapped used in automatic fiber tracking. Partial name accepted. Full list of tracts

Click on Run workflow to start.

  1. Download Results:

Once completed, the FIB files, tract files, and tract metrics can be downloaded from the Release on the right of the repository.
