Datafile converters

This page contains tools (distributed as binaries) able to perform the conversion of data acquired on real scanners to the CASToR format. This page is intended to be updated as soon as converters for other scanners become available. If you have developed such a converter and are willing to share it with the CASToR community please let us know.

 

Siemens Biograph 6 Truepoint w/ TrueV

The following package contains tools for the conversion of Siemens Biography 6 TruePoint with TrueV (4-rings) PET data to the CASToR data file format. Binaries compatible with Windows and Unix-64 bits are included.


GE SIGNA PET/MR

The following package contains tools for the conversion of GE SIGNA PET/MR PET data to the CASToR data file format. A binary compatible with Linux 64-bit is included.

 

Data converters for simulation platforms

GATE : CASToR contains several toolkits to automatically convert data simulated with GATE, and the system geometry, in the CASToR file formats. The toolkits currently manages standard cylindricalPET and SPECThead systems. The input data must be in root format. Please see the documentation, section 8.2 of the general documentation file to get information about the GATE commands currently supported by CASToR, and how to use the toolkits.

 

SIMIND : The SIMIND SPECT simulation distribution includes a "smc2castor" program allowing to convert simulated SPECT projections to CASToR file formats.
