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.

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.
