Package radtools details

Utilities for Convenient Extraction of Medical Image Metadata

A collection of utilities for navigating medical image data. The DICOM and NIfTI formats are supported. Functions provide simple interfaces to the data and metadata contained in these formats. A particular emphasis on metadata allows simple conversion of image metadata to familiar R data structures such as lists and data frames. Where possible, generic functions can silently process either DICOM or NIfTI data. Additionally, image data can be extracted and viewed.
