       ecattominc - convert an ecat format file (version 6.x or 7.x) to a minc format file


       ecattominc [<options>] <infile> <outfile.mnc>

       ecattominc [-help]


       ecattominc  will  convert  an  ecat  data  file (version 6.x or 7.x) to a minc file format
       Unless the -small_header  option  is  specified,  ecattominc  will  conserve  the  maximum
       information from the ecat header and subheader fields which will be respectively stored as
       attributes of the ecat-main and ecat-subhdr minc variables.  By default the whole 3D or 4D
       volume  is  converted,  however,  ecattominc  allows  for the selection of slice and frame
       ranges to be copied.  The voxel values of the generated minc  file  are  decay  corrected,
       unless  the  nodecay_correct  flag is specified.  Finally, blood data file can be inserted
       within the minc file with the -bloodfile option.


       Note that options can be specified in abbreviated form (as long as they  are  unique)  and
       can be given anywhere on the command line.
