Collaborative Computational Project in Synergistic Reconstruction for Biomedical Imaging



We use Github as a repository for the CCP SyneRBI software, see and our software framework page for more info.

You can install our SIRF software in a few different ways, via

  • pre built Virtual Machine (suggested to familiarize with the software)
  • Docker, or
  • by building the software yourself.

Please check our wiki page for more information. Here we provide links to downloadable files.

CCPSyneRBI Virtual Machine

Older versions of the VM can be found with 10.5281/zenodo.3552234 DOI (digital object identifier). Please be aware that the file size is large, so download may take a long time and even fail.

Check this video for instructions on how to use the Virtual Machine.

The Virtual Machine has been created with VirtualBox 6.0.14 and with the VirtualBox Guest Additions (VGA) pre-installed. If you have a different version of VirtualBox you might experience issues, especially running the X server. If you are using a different version of VirtualBox we therefore strongly recommend to sync your VGA version
