Is the following possible in Mango?

Postby nmunim » Sat May 11, 2019 3:04 am

I'm trying to find a way to make a similar figure as Fig1a in the following URL. Specifically, I would like to display my ROIs and the hypothesized connections between them in a brain model. I've been trying to play around with Mango to see if this is possible, but am not having much luck. Has anyone produced a figure similar to this? If so, could you advise me on how to do so?

Yes, you should be able to make an image like that in Mango. They only thing that might be missing is being able to customize the thickness of the connecting lines. Some steps:

1) Build your surface
2) Surface viewer: Surface > Material > set transparency to something like 50%
3) Slice viewer: Line up the crosshairs at the location to make a point. ROI > Add ROI > create a sphere ROI of something like 8mm size.
4) Slice viewer: In the Toolbox, select the points button (second button to right), third options down (looks like cloud of points). In the sliced viewer, click at the location of the crosshairs (the center of the ROI you just created). You need the points to creates the lines.
5) Repeat for all your points.
6) Surface viewer: Shapes> you'll see your points, select one and Line To another, this will draw the lines.

Some example screenshots:
