This software provides a support Python library and auxiliary console based tools to perform common tasks for the analysis of quantitative MRI data.

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 Bitbucket:

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