Introduction to FreeSurfer on the OSPool¶
FreeSurfer is a software package to analyze MRI scans of human brains. The OSG used to have a service called Fsurf, which is now discontinued. Instead we have community supported FreeSurfer container image and workflow. Please see:

To use the FreeSurfer on OSG, you need:

Privacy and Confidentiality of Subjects¶
In order to protect the privacy of your participants’ scans, we request that you submit only defaced and fully deidentified scans for processing.
