I run @SSwarper before afni_proc. For most of the participants, the results are good. But for 7 of them, the results missed some parts of the cortex.
For example, one of the participants results:
The input looks good:
The init_QC01 and init_QC02 look like missed part of the cortex.
The AFNI version info (
afni -ver): Precompiled binary macos_10.12_local: May 30 2023 (Version AFNI_23.1.07 'Publius Helvius Pertinax')
-input "$i".T1.padded180.nii \
-base TT_N27_SSW.nii.gz \
Could you please help? Thank you in advance!
i'd also be interested in what the experts think about this. i myself have found that if SSwarper doesn't perform super well (usually it does!) it's in that superior parietal region. if you add something like -SSopt -push_to_edge to your SSwarper command that could help but maybe the true experts have other recommendations
Thank you for your suggestion. I tried -SSopt '-o_ply Fred.Is.Wonderful' but it did not work. -push_to_edge is not an option of @sswarpper. But from the help file of 3dSkullStrip, I think it might be helpful if it could be set for @sswarpper.
Do you have any suggestion? Is it possible to set the parameters similar to -push_to_edge for sswarpper? Thanks!
in your SSwarper command you have to type "-SSopt -push_to_edge" all together like that.
SSopt is like a little 'doorway' into directly controlling 3dskullstrip. actually AFNI has a lot of that, part of what makes it so awesome. for example type
"afni_proc.py -show_valid_opts | grep _opts" and you'll see many similar doorways within the afni_proc castle ;-)
in any case, I'm still interested in what Paul and the other real experts might suggest, but for now you know you can still try that. cheers
Thank you for your help! I tried "-SSopt -push_to_edge" and the results are better!
For the same participant, in the left figure, the results covered the whole brain. But in the right figure, the results did not change.
Also, thank you for the information of "doorway". I didn't know that before. It seems that @SSwarpper has no -show_valid_opts parameters. Can I set the -SSopt to push more to the edge? Do you have suggestions?
