mia-2dmyocard-ica {-i io} [ options ...]


This program is used to run a ICA on a series of myocardial perfusion images to create sythetic references that can be used for motion correction by image registration. If the aim is to run a full motion compensation then it is better to create a segmentation set and use mia-2dmyoica-nonrigid. If the input data is given by means of a segmentation set, then on can also use mia-2dmyocard-icaseries. This program is essentially used to test different options on how to run the ICA forreference image creation.
