ecattominc convert an ecat format file (version 6.x or 7.x) to a minc format file ecattominc <options> <infile> <outfile.mnc> ecattominc -help


ecattominc will convert an ecat data file (version 6.x or 7.x) to a minc file format Unless the -small_header option is specified, ecattominc will conserve the maximum informations from the ecat header and subheader fields which will be respectively stored as attributes of the ecat-main and ecat-subhdr minc variables. By default the whole 3D or 4D volume is converted, however, ecattominc allows for the selection of slice and frame ranges to be copied. The voxel values of the generated minc file are decay corrected, unless the nodecay_correct flag is specified. Finally, blood data file can be inserted within the minc file with the -bloodfile option.


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