Function for Viewing MRI Slices

version (1.75 KB) by Aras
Allows the viewing of slices of MRI data in the NIFTI format.

View License

This simple function allows the user to view the saggital, coronal and horizontal slices of a certain .nii format MRI scan. All you need to do is enter the x, y and z coordinates of a certain point to be able to view the slices that pass through that certain point. Colormap is set automatically to gray, but can be changed if desired.
The function uses the load_nii function from Jimmy Shen's "Tools for NIfTI and ANALYZE image" toolbox, and will not work without it.

You should type the entire directory for the NIFTI file you wish to slice. For example, you can use this form= C:\Users\User\Documents\Scans\nifti.nii

I hope this helps...


For the load_nii function to work properly, the entire path should be entered as t in the function.Otherwise, load_nii might not be able to find the file?

what should I do?
