       mincpik - generate images from minc files


       mincpik [options] <infile>.mnc [<image.type>]


       mincpik  generates  image files from MINC volumes using the Imagemagick
       convert utility. For a complete list  of  output  file  types  see  the
       convert man pages.

       Currently  if there is a time dimension in the file the image will only
       produced from the first time point

General options

              print out extra information

              overwrite the output file if it exists already

       -fake  usually used in combination with -verbose to echo commands only

       -slice slice number to get (note this is in voxel co-ordinates)

       -scale scaling factor for resulting image, by default images are output
              at twice their original resolution

       -width autoscale  the  resulting  image to have a fixed image width (in

       -depth bit-depth for resulting image 8 or 16 (MSB machines only)

       -title add a title to the resulting  image,  if  just  this  option  is
              specified  the  text used for the title is the name of the input
              image file.  -title_text specify the title  text  to  use.  This
              option must be used in conjunction with -title

       Image range and lookup table options

       -range min max
              valid range of values to use from MINC file

       -image_range min max
              range of image values to use for pixel intensity

              automatically  determine  image  range  using  a  5 and 95% PcT.

       -lookup arguments
              arguments to pass to minclookup

Slicing options

              get a transverse slice

       -axial synonym for transverse

              get a coronal slice

              get a sagital slice

              this option is deprecated, use -triplanar instead

Triplanar options

              create a triplanar view of the input MINC file

              pixel size for each image in a triplanar

              offset the saggital slice from the centre in the triplanar

              create a vertical  triplanar  series  of  images  (this  is  the

              create a horizontal triplanar instead of a vertical one

Generic options for all commands:

       -help  Print summary of command-line options and abort.
