       ecattominc - convert an ecat format file (version 6.x or 7.x) to a minc
       format file


       ecattominc [<options>] <infile> <outfile.mnc>

       ecattominc [-help]


       ecattominc will convert an ecat data file (version 6.x  or  7.x)  to  a
       minc   file  format  Unless  the  -small_header  option  is  specified,
       ecattominc will conserve the maximum informations from the ecat  header
       and subheader fields which will be respectively stored as attributes of
       the ecat-main and ecat-subhdr minc variables.  By default the whole  3D
       or 4D volume is converted, however, ecattominc allows for the selection
       of slice and frame ranges to  be  copied.   The  voxel  values  of  the
       generated  minc  file  are  decay corrected, unless the nodecay_correct
       flag is specified.  Finally, blood data file can be inserted within the
       minc file with the -bloodfile option.


       Note that options can be specified in abbreviated form (as long as they
       are unique) and can be given anywhere on the command line.
