This page explains how to set up Face Masking as an XNAT pipeline.
- mask_face command line tool has been installed to /etc/maskface (see mask_face usage manual)
- XNAT pipeline catalog is under <pipeline_catalog> directory. (See Installing the Pipeline Engine)
- Have XNAT client tools ArcGet and XNATRestClient available for your XNAT pipelines
- Copy the contents of /etc/maskface/pipeline to <pipeline_catalog>/maskface
- Modify <pipeline_catalog>/maskface/maskface_setup.sh to set up mask_face tool environment dependencies
In the <pipeline_catalog>/maskface/FaceMasking.xml:
- Modify the <location> value in the pipeline descriptor FaceMasking.xml to point to the actual location of the file
In the <pipeline_catalog>/maskface/resource/mask_face.xml:
- Edit the <pip:location> in <pipeline_catalog>/mask_face/resource/mask_face.xml to point to /etc/maskface/bin
- Edit the <pip:commandPrefix> to something like "source /etc/maskface/pipeline/maskface_setup.sh; /bin/bash -V"
Setting up the Face Masking pipeline in XNAT
Set up the pipeline according to the XNAT documentation. Refer to the XNAT pipeline installation manual.
The pipeline should be run on xnat:mrSessionData datatype. Face masking is effective for high resolution scans only.
|Scan IDs||When running the pipeline, the user can select which scans to deface|
|Invasiveness||increase or decrease to control the degree of masking and depth of voxel alteration|
