NAME

mnc2nii - convert a MINC format file to a NIfTI-1 or Analyze format file.

 

SYNOPSIS

mnc2nii [<options>] <infile.mnc> <outfile.mnc>

mnc2nii -help

 

DESCRIPTION

The mnc2nii command is used to convert MINC format files to either NIfTI-1 or Analyze 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.

In addition to the NIfTI-1 formats, mnc2nii can convert MINC files to the Analyze 7.5 format.

 

OPTIONS

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

-ASCII
Save file in non-standard NIfTI-1 ASCII file format
-nii
Save file in NIfTI-1 single-file format (.nii)
-analyze
Save file in Analyze 7.5 compatible 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

Other options

-noscanrange
Don't scan data to determine valid range.
-quiet

Generic options for all commands

-help
Print summary of command-line options and abort
-version
Print the program and library versions and abort

 

KNOWN BUGS

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.
