Module Description

Program title Copy Image Orientation
Program description This program will copy the orientation from the reference image into the moving image. Currently, the registration process requires that the diffusion weighted images and the anatomical images have the same image orientation (i.e. Axial, Coronal, Sagittal). It is suggested that you copy the image orientation from the diffusion weighted images and apply this to the anatomical image. This image can be subsequently removed after the registration step is complete. We anticipate that this limitation will be removed in future versions of the registration programs.
