This software provides a support Python library and auxiliary console-based tools to perform common tasks for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The aim is to be the multi-tool of MRI.

At present, the following features are best supported:

  • generic tools for image analysis from an MRI perspective

  • data analysis for quantitative MRI experiments

On top of this, additional effort is currently being put in the following areas:

  • image reconstruction and related features (e.g. coil combination, etc.)

It is relatively easy to extend and users are encouraged to tweak with it.

As a result of the code maturity, some of the library components may undergo (eventually heavy) refactoring, although this is currently unexpected.

Releases information are available through NEWS.rst.

For a more comprehensive list of changes see CHANGELOG.rst.


The recommended way of installing the software is through PyPI:

$ pip install pymrt

Alternatively, you can clone the source repository from GitHub:

$ mkdir pymrt
$ cd pymrt
$ git clone
$ python install
