BART: Computational Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Figure: Simulated MRI images.
The Berkeley Advanced Reconstruction Toolbox (BART) toolbox is a free and open-source image-reconstruction
framework for Computational Magnetic Resonance Imaging
developed by the research groups of
(Graz University of Technology), Jon Tamir
(UT Austin), and
It consists of a programming library and a toolbox of command-line programs. The library provides common operations on multi-dimensional
arrays, Fourier and wavelet transforms, as well as generic implementations of iterative optimization algorithms.
The command-line tools provide direct access to basic operations on multi-dimensional arrays as well
as efficient implementations of many calibration and reconstruction algorithms for parallel imaging and compressed sensing

Perform ESPIRiT calibration and image reconstruction with
$ bart ecalib kspace sensitivities
$ bart pics -l1 -r0.001 kspace sensitivities image_out
A python-based image viewer (bartview.py) which can read the
BART data format is included in the source repository.
An image viewer for Linux and Mac OS X can be found
