What did I do this week?

#PR 818: Tutorial on using ellipsoid actor to visualize tensor ellipsoids for DTI

I created the PR for the tutorial that will show the use that can be made of the ellipsoid actor in the visualization of diffusion tensor ellipsoids. It is still in its most basic stage, but the structure that I have thought of for now consists of: displaying a slice using tensor_slicer with spheres of 100, 200, and 724 vertices, and using ellipsoid actor, and show a comparison of the visual quality of the tensor ellipsoids. Then, display a ROI using both actors and a whole brain using the ellipsoid actor, to show that this new actor gives the possibility to display more data.

I also submitted the uncertainty PR for review, in order to start making the necessary corrections.

What is coming up next?

I need #PR 791 to be merged first, but meanwhile, I will start working on the explanation of the tutorial, since I already have the code structure and the idea of what I want to illustrate. I will discuss further work with my mentors at the upcoming meeting, so I can organize myself better and plan how I'm going to address the pending parts of my project.

Did I get stuck anywhere?

I found no major difficulties this week.
