       dinifti - converts DICOM files into the NIfTI format


       dinifti [options] <DICOM input> <NIfTI output>


       dinifti  converts a single or several files at once into the NIfTI data format.  The DICOM
       input can be specified as a single filename, a list of file or a directory. In case  of  a
       directory all files in this directory will be converted.

       Images  belonging  to the same recording series will be appropriately merged into a single
       3d or 4d NIfTI file.  To achieve this dinifti gathers the number of time points and number
       of  slices per volume from the DICOM header. When this is impossible, dinifti will issue a
       warning (i.e. when it can find only 1 slice per volume and 1 time point). The user has the
       option  of running the program using the -s option and specifying the number of slices per

       A number of items are retrieved from the Siemens Shadow set. Following is a list of  items
       and default value if this is not Siemens.

       -g     NIfTI files will be compressed.

       -f [a2|n2|n1]
              Set  the output file format.  If set to a2 ANALYZE 7.5 file pairs (hdr/img) will be
              generates.  Setting n2 will cause dinifti to generate NIfTI image file pairs.   The
              default  output  format (n1) are single NIfTI files (header and image data combined
              in one file).

       -d     If set dinifti appends the series description from the DICOM header to  the  output
              file name(s).

              If  two  image  series  share  a  common  description  dinifti  will append as many
              characters as necessary to  the  second  series  description  to  create  a  unique
              filename.  In  this  case a warning message is displayed that shows the old and the
              modified filename.

              Format output file name(s) according to <format> string, which has to  be  enclosed
              in quotes (")

              The  format  is  interpreted  in the usual printf-like way. Ordinary characters are
              directly copied, a percent sign is represented  by  %%,  otherwise  %  indicates  a
              conversion.  The special character "/" is translated to "~" to avoid confusion with
              the directory separator.

              If --name is present, -d flag will be ignored.

              %I Subject ID

              %N Subject name

              %S Relative series number

              %D Series description

              %Y Series date (YYYYMMDD)

              %T Series time (HHMM)

              %A Accession number

              %C Image comments

              Example: --name="%Y:%T- %A - %I -%D(%S)"

       -s #   This option can be used to specify the number of slices in the volume,  if  dinifti
              fails to autodetect the correct value.

       -v, --verbose
              Enables  verbose status messages. If any warning message occurs, this option can be
              helpful to determine which imageseries caused it.

       -n, --noact
              If set, dinifti performs all processing steps, but does not write  NIfTI  files  at
              the end. This can be useful to quickly inspect the content of a DICOM directory (if
              ran together with --verbose).

       -h, --help
              Print this help page and exit.

       -V, --version
              Print the version number and exit.
