       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 images.


       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



       Pre-built VoxBo binaries are available for Linux, OSX, and Cygwin,  and
