For calculating exact geodesic distances on cortical surface meshes

Project description


Build Status

Calculate the exact geodesic distance on a triangular surface mesh using the gdist package, which is based on the c++ library.


pip install surfdist

# calculate and display distance from central sulcus at each node:

surf = nib.freesurfer.read_geometry(os.path.join(base_dir, 'bert/surf/lh.pial'))
cort = np.sort(nib.freesurfer.read_label(os.path.join(base_dir, 'bert/label/lh.cortex.label')))
sulc = nib.freesurfer.read_morph_data(os.path.join(base_dir, 'bert/surf/lh.sulc'))

# load central sulcus nodes

# calculate distance
dist = sd.analysis.dist_calc(surf, cort, src)

# visualize
plot_med = sd.viz.viz(surf[0], surf[1], dist, bg_map=sulc, bg_on_stat=True, cmap=cmap)
