Mac, Linux see up to five percent variance in data

Neurological imaging tool FreeSurfer, curated at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, is a commonly-used open-source software tool employed by researchers to measure cortical thickness and volume of varying brain structures from the MRI scan of a patient.

No explanation has been given by the curators for the phenomenon.
