Subtract 2 DICOM files

Hi you all,

I would like to know whether there is an AFNI command that will allow me subtracting 2 raw DICOM acquisitions?

Thank you!


I do not believe there is such a tool in AFNI. The DICOM images come in varied formats and data types, and come after their own headers. While I have done a similar operation before, it was by:

  • converting them to datasets
  • applying the operation
  • writing the raw data back into the DICOM file (after the header)

Since most software handles NIFTI images, would it be possible to do such work using that format instead?

oh ok then I guess I will first convert to NIFTI format and then probably use a 3dcalc command
