|-2||Create a MINC 2.0 format output file.|
|-clobber||Overwrite an existing file.|
|Dont overwrite an existing file (default).|
|-verbose||Print out progress information for each chunk of data copied (default).|
|-quiet||Do not print out progress information.|
|Specify the maximum size of the copy buffer (in kbytes). Default is 4096 kbytes.|
Specify a file containing a list of input file names. If "-" is given, then
file names are read from stdin. If this option is given, then there should be
no input file names specified on the command line. Empty lines in the input
file are ignored.
-filetype Dont do any type conversion (default). -byte Write out 8-bit integer voxels. -short Write out 16-bit integer voxels. -int Write out 32-bit integer voxels. -long Superseded by -int. -float Write out single-precision floating point values. -double Write out double-precision floating point values. -signed Write out values as signed integers (default for short and long). Ignored for floating point types. -unsigned Write out values as unsigned integers (default for byte). Ignored for floating point types. -valid_range min max Specifies the valid range of output voxel values in their integer representation. Default is the full range for the type and sign. This option is ignored for floating point values.
-concat_dimension name Specifies the name of concatenation dimension. If the dimension exists in the input files, then coordinates are taken from those files. If not, then a new dimension is created and the coordinate for each input file is taken from command-line options. The default is to use the slowest varying dimension of the first file. -start start Specifies the starting coordinate for the new dimension (default = 0.0). -step step Specifies the separation between voxels for the new dimension (default = 1.0). -width width Specifies the (constant) width of each sample along the new dimension (default = none). -coordlist c1,c2,... Specifies a comma-separated list of coordinates along the new dimension. -widthlist w1,w2,... Specifies a comma-separated list of widths along the new dimension. -filestarts s1,s2,... Specifies a comma-separated list of offsets to the coordinate origins for each of the files listed on the command line. This option is useful for concatenating files along an existing dimension, for example for concatenating multiple functional runs along a time dimension. -check_dimensions Check that all input files have matching sampling in world dimensions (default). -nocheck_dimensions Ignore any differences between input files in world dimensions sampling. -ascending Sort coordinates in ascending order (default). -descending Sort coordinates in descending order. -interleaved Sort slabs by their dimension coordinate, interleaving if necessary (default). -sequential Dont sort slabs, just concatenate them together. WARNING - this will destroy the dimension information along the concatenating dimension, replacing the start and step with zero and one.
-help Print summary of command-line options and exit. -version Print the programs version number and exit.
To concatenate two volumes with dimensions zspace, yspace, xspace, having interleaved slices along zspace, we can simply use
mincconcat input1.mnc input2.mnc output.mnc
If we have a bunch of compressed (yspace, xspace) images that we wish to concatenate into an evenly spaced volume, then we can type
mincconcat input1.mnc.gz input2.mnc.gz input3.mnc.gz \
input4.mnc.gz output.mnc \
-concat_dimension zspace -start -23 -step 2
