       vbim - manipulate 3D and 4D volumes


       vbim <flag> ...


       vbim is part of the VoxBo suite of tools for brain image analysis.

       vbim  is  a  multi-purpose  program that applies various simple manipulations to 3D and 4D


       vbim performs a set of operations, specified by option  flags,  in  sequence.   To  get  a
       complete list of available flags, run the program with no arguments.


       To get very basic info about a file:

              vbim foo.nii -info

       To get more detailed information about the data within a mask:

              vbim foo.nii -regioninfo mask.nii

       To apply a mask to a 3D image and write out the result:

              vbim image.nii -mask mask.nii -write maskedimage.nii

       To mask a 4D image:

              vbim image.nii -mask mask.nii -write4D maskedimage.nii

       To average a bunch of 3D volumes:

              vbim *.nii.gz -average -write mean.nii.gz

       To create a lesion count map from a set of lesion masks:

              vbim *.nii -count -write count.nii.gz

       To  create a 4D volume (20x20x20 voxels, 32-bit int, 10 time points) of random data with a
       mean of 100 and sd of 10:

              vbim -newvol 20 20 20 10 int32 -addnoise 100 10 -write3d myvol.nii
