Orient Scalar Volume


Orients an output volume. Rearranges the slices in a volume according to the selected orientation. The slices are not interpolated. They are just reordered and/or permuted. The resulting volume will cover the original volume. NOTE: since Slicer takes into account the orientation of a volume, the re-oriented volume will not show any difference from the original volume, To see the difference, save the volume and display it with a system that either ignores the orientation of the image (e.g. Paraview) or displays individual images.

Panels and their use

IO: Input/output parameters

  • Input Volume 1 (inputVolume1): Input volume 1

  • Output Volume (outputVolume): The oriented volume

Orientation Parameters: Orientation of output

  • Orientation (orientation): Orientation choices
