Load, save, make, reslice, view (and edit) both NIfTI and ANALYZE data on any platform

make_ana(varargin)
%  Make ANALYZE 7.5 data structure specified by a 3D or 4D matrix.
%  Optional parameters can also be included, such as: voxel_size, 
%  origin, datatype, and description. 
%  
%  Once the ANALYZE structure is made, it can be saved into ANALYZE 7.5 
%  format data file using "save_untouch_nii" command (for more detail, 
%  type: help save_untouch_nii). 
%  
%  Usage: ana = make_ana(img, [voxel_size], [origin], [datatype], [description])
%
%  Where:
%
%	img:		a 3D matrix [x y z], or a 4D matrix with time
%			series [x y z t]. When image is in RGB format,
%			make sure that the size of 4th dimension is 
%			always 3 (i.e. [R G B]). In that case, make 
%			sure that you must specify RGB datatype to 128.
%
%	voxel_size (optional):	Voxel size in millimeter for each
%				dimension. Default is [1 1 1].
%
%	origin (optional):	The AC origin. Default is [0 0 0].
%
%	datatype (optional):	Storage data type:
%		2 - uint8,  4 - int16,  8 - int32,  16 - float32,
%		64 - float64,  128 - RGB24
%			Default will use the data type of 'img' matrix
%			For RGB image, you must specify it to 128.
%
%	description (optional):	Description of data. Default is ''.
%
%  e.g.:
%     origin = [33 44 13]; datatype = 64;
%     ana = make_ana(img, [], origin, datatype);    % default voxel_size
%
%  ANALYZE 7.5 format: http://www.rotman-baycrest.on.ca/~jimmy/ANALYZE75.pdf
