read AFNI brick labels in R

Hi Rick,

Is there a way to only read AFNI brick labels without really read/load the file itself in R? Something like 3dinfo -verb.


Hi 2086,

I don’t think there is an extensive interface for that. But it might be easy to indeed run 3dinfo, as it does not load the dataset, e.g.

3dinfo -label DSET+tlrc

or maybe with specifying space as a sub-brick delimiter:

3dinfo -sb_delim ’ ’ -label DSET+tlrc
