GW Raw MRI View
Article created: 2003-06-22

(Formerly GWORC: GW Orientation Reality Check)


GWRawMRIView is a viewer for MRI files that is particularly suited to showing how the raw data is organized without trying to be too helpful. It is guaranteed not to understand any particular format or headers.

Update 2004-10-20

I've been using this tool regularly and have added a few features along the way, and have only now got around to posting a new version. See below for details.


This tool is especially useful if you are trying to determine how your raw MRI data is ordered, independent of what the header might say, and without confusion that comes from a viewer attempting to show a desirable orientation.  GWRawMRIView shows several images that are clearly marked as to how the images relate to data order in the data file.

These kinds of issues arise when converting between different file formats, and when using Analyze-format data or the newer NIFTI format, the BRIK data files of AFNI, raw MRI scanner files, and also 2-D slice images of various kinds.

System Requirements


(This is of version -- a few more features have been added, details below.)
