Access a multitude of neuroimaging data formats
Read / write access to some common neuroimaging file formats
This package provides read +/- write access to some common medical and neuroimaging file formats, including: ANALYZE (plain, SPM99, SPM2 and later), GIFTI, NIfTI1, NIfTI2, CIFTI-2, MINC1, MINC2, AFNI BRIK/HEAD, MGH and ECAT as well as Philips PAR/REC. We can read and write FreeSurfer geometry, annotation and morphometry files. There is some very limited support for DICOM. NiBabel is the successor of PyNIfTI.
The various image format classes give full or selective access to header (meta) information and access to the image data is made available via NumPy arrays.
Current documentation on nibabel can always be found at the NIPY nibabel website.
Please send any questions or suggestions to the neuroimaging mailing list.
