nii2mnc - convert a NIfTI-1 or Analyze 7.5 format file to a MINC format file.
nii2mnc [<options>] <infile> <outfile.mnc> nii2mnc -help
The nii2mnc command is used to convert "NIfTI-1" format files to MINC format. The NIfTI-1 format was developed by the members of the Neuroinformatics Technology Initiative's Data Format Working Group (DFWG). The NIfTI-1 format is based upon the Mayo Clinic's Analyze 7.5 format. The name of the program is derived from the common filename suffixes used for NIfTI-1 and MINC files. NIfTI-1 defines two possible formats, a "header plus raw image" 2-file format, and a single-file format that includes both header information and the image data. As with Analyze 7.5, the 2-file format consists of one file with the suffix ".hdr" and another file with the extension ".img". In NIfTI-1 single-file format, the two files may be combined into a single file with a ".nii" filename suffix.
Note that options can be specified in abbreviated form (as long as they are unique) and can be given anywhere on the command line.
Output voxel format
-float Save voxels in 32-bit floating point format -double Save voxels in 64-bit floating point format -byte Save voxels in 8-bit integer format -short Save voxels in 16-bit integer format -int Save voxels in 32-bit integer format -signed Save voxels in signed (2's complement) integer format -unsigned Save voxels in unsigned integer format
Analyze 7.5 specific options
-transverse Assume data is in ZYX dimension order. -sagittal Assume data is in XZY dimension order. -coronal Assume data is in YZX dimension order. -xyz Assume data is in XYZ dimension order. -zxy Assume data is in ZXY dimension order. -yxz Assume data is in YXZ dimension order. -flipx, -flipy, -flipz Invert the samples along the given axis.
-noscanrange Don't scan data to determine valid range. -quiet Quiet operation - do not print progress or debugging information.
Generic options for all commands
-help Print summary of command-line options and abort -version Print the program and library versions and abort
Current handling of NIfTI-1 qform and sform coordinate transforms should probably be revised as the NIfTI group clarifies the correct usage of these fields.
