This document describes a suite of new multi-threaded classes for calculating magnetic resonance (MR) T2 and T1 parameter maps implemented using the Insight Toolkit ITK ( Similar to MR diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), MR T2 and T1 parameter maps provide a non-invasive means for quantitatively measuring disease or pathology in-vivo. Included in the suite are classes for reading proprietary Bruker 2dseq and Philips PAR/REC images and example programs and data for validating the new classes.
