Homepage of the DKFZ FNTD Project
The purpose of the DKFZ FNTD project is to exploit and advance the use of fluorescent nuclear track detectors (FNTDs) in proton and ion-beam therapy. One major focus hereby is the development of a software package for track data analysis.
How to get and use the software
Our software uses ImageJ as class library. Its core functions are written in Java and bundled in a single jar-file (the library). This library is provided as plugin for ImageJ and Fiji and as an extension package to the R language (the package). The latter enables scripting (i.e. high-throughput usage) and extensions of the library functions. Our policy is to have full functionality in both the R and the Java part. However, due to the fact that most prototyping is done in R, the R package is usually ahead of the library.
- Both the library and the R package are open-source and hosted on github.
- A stable release of the R package (master branch) is provided through R-forge.
