dicom_write_volume Reference to non-existent field 'SliceLocation'

1 view (last 30 days)
I have segmented a series of DICOM images and now I want to reconstruct the segmented images in 3D slicer. I am trying to use the dicom_write_volume function but I get the following error:
Reference to non-existent field 'SliceLocation'.
Error in dicom_write_volume (line 57)
info.SliceLocation = info.SliceLocation+volscale(3);
I would appreciate any help. Thanks

You must supply the Slice Location information when you write a dicom volume. DICOM can assume pixel locations in X Y by having been given pixel resolution, but the absolute Z location is primary information not derived information.
