ORTHOVIEW3D GUI for interactive viewing of 3D Volumes
ORTHOVIEW3D is used to view orthographic slices of 3D volumes

Type in an expression that generates a 3D array
then press the Display button

3D expressions such as: rand(50,40,30) or
the name or a 3D array variable in the workspace

Use the scroll bars to change the number of the slice viewed

Use the transpose, flipud, or fliplr to
transpose the view, flip it vertically, or horizontally

Change the Pixel Size values to the volume's physical dimensions
so the aspect ratio is displayed properly
(note: you can use relative values
for example use 1,3,2 instead of 0.5,1.5,1.0
then press "Adjust Pixel Size"

load defrise
(Type 'defrise' in the box where 'rand(50,40,30)' appears)
(Press 'Display')

Author's Note
This file was adapted from ORTHOVIEW by Ghassan Hamarneh (see ref).
It has been accelerated and simplified for viewing larger volumes.
A simple window/level tool has also been added to supplement the
viewing of medical images with familiar tools.
