Semi-Automatic Post Processing Software
I have developed new software that I recommend using in place of CHOP-fMRU for MRU and MAG3 analysis. Learn more about it at www.parametricmri.com or contact me for details!
MR urography (MRU) is an imaging modality of the urinary tract in children, providing one-stop comprehensive morphological and functional information, without the utilization of ionizing radiation. The functional analysis of the MRU scan still requires external post-processing using relatively complex software.
The CHOP-fMRU application (which stands for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia functional Magnetic Resonance Urography) allows for comprehensive automated functional analysis of MRU data and is very user-friendly, fast, and easily operated by the average radiologist or MR technologist.

Click on the link below to download the program. Unzip the file and run CHOP-fMRU.exe to start the application. The launcher that comes up has various other resources such as an instructions manual and an example case.
**NOTE** CHOP-fMRU is available for MAC and Linux too, but you must contact me first for installation instructions on those platforms!
