Neurosense is a trained neural network for identifying full or near-full coverage head/brain scans in large human magnetic resonance image datasets.
Quick Start Guide
Neurosense comes in the form of an Ubuntu Virtual Machine, which has FSL pre-installed. Therefore, its use is conditional on your agreement of the FSL software license available at https://fsl.fmrib.ox.ac.uk/fsldownloads_registration. You do not need to download FSL itself as it has been pre-installed. However, make sure you read and agree to the terms of the FSL software license before using Neurosense.
You will need VirtualBox to run the Neurosense virtual machine. If you do not already have VirtualBox, download and install it for your platform from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
Installation and Use
Download Neurosense_v0.3.ova from this link (password:
neurosense) and save it in an appropriate location. It is recommended that all work is carried out in an encrypted, safe environment if you will be using Neurosense on sensitive data.
Start VirtualBox, and choose

- You may wish to check your VirtualBox settings to ensure you have enough computing resources available to Neurosense.
- Neurosense has been trained primarily using T1-weighted MRI volumes, performance on MR volumes of other contrasts and non-MRI volumes will be degraded.
- Any queries can be sent to email@example.com.
