Tools for NIfTI and ANALYZE image

by

 

23 Oct 2005 (Updated )

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

mat_into_hdr(files)
%MAT_INTO_HDR  The old versions of SPM (any version before SPM5) store
%	an affine matrix of the SPM Reoriented image into a matlab file 
%	(.mat extension). The file name of this SPM matlab file is the
%	same as the SPM Reoriented image file (.img/.hdr extension).
%
%	This program will convert the ANALYZE 7.5 SPM Reoriented image
%	file into NIfTI format, and integrate the affine matrix in the
%	SPM matlab file into its header file (.hdr extension).
%
%	WARNING: Before you run this program, please save the header
%	file (.hdr extension) into another file name or into another
%	folder location, because all header files (.hdr extension)
%	will be overwritten after they are converted into NIfTI
%	format.
%
%  Usage: mat_into_hdr(filename);
%
%  filename:	file name(s) with .hdr or .mat file extension, like:
%		'*.hdr', or '*.mat', or a single .hdr or .mat file.
%	e.g.	mat_into_hdr('T1.hdr')
%		mat_into_hdr('*.mat')
