Here is the nifticlib.i file, not a lot of differences.

Are you able to read DTI image files in DICOM ? That could interest me a

Do you have a wrapper over FSL and SPM in Python ?

We have the same problem when converting DICOM to analyze, the two pieces of
software we use (MRIConvert and MRICRO or something like that) don't use the
same coordinate system...

I don't know if this is covered elsewhere or not, but it should receive some

You have mine :)
