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_.
