Reslicing Tool

Table of Contents

see also: Index, Plugins


The Reslicing Tool can read MMM generated co-registration result and job summary files and add (i.e. matrix-multiply) the saved transformation matrix to the default (or current) reslicing position of a given list of image buffers. The parameters can be edited. The MMM transformation matrix can be inverted. You can choose between working on an image clone or in-place (of the reslicing image(s)).

If you work in-place and the registration result contains only translation and rotation parameters the image data remain unchanged and the tool computes combined transformation parameters. If the MMM result contains additional stretch parameters the reslicing images’ data and file names change and the images get marked as existing in-memory only.

If you work on an image clone the original reslicing images also remain unchanged and the clone’s image data display the transformation in reset position.

Alternatively, you can add the given reslicing matrix of an image buffer to the images in the list which will allign offset, rotation and zoom. Cut position and rotation center will be set to equal display positions as well.

Or you can do both at once, e.g. to add reslicing matrix of the Source image to the MMM result. The two x-labeled buttons clear the input of the two groups.

Instead of using the reslicing matrix of a Source image you can now load a second transform, the Source transform. Handling is as with the MMM transform described above.


MMM Transformation in Result File (MMM)


Open a File-Bowser to search for and lond an MMM generated co-registration result or job summary file.

x (button)

If checked the tool uses the inverted MMM transformation.

Chose a single image buffer and select it.

+ (button)

Add an image buffer and select it.


Add all loaded Vinci image buffers.

Sync absolute reslicing

Synchronizing absolute reslicing first sets the initial reslicing and then syncs the relative reslicing, see below. This setting makes the images (I) co-registered:

The tool sets the initial reslicing to the MMM transform if present or to the source transform if present or to the source image's initial reslicing and syncs its relative reslicing.

Sync relative reslicing

Synchronizing relative reslicing means adding netto reslicing to the target's initial reslicing. This setting keeps images (I) with valid initial reslicing co-registered:

The tool adds the MMM transform if present to target's initial reslicing or adds the source transform if present to target's initial reslicing or adds the source image's netto reslicing (its reslicing relative to its initial reslicing) to target's initial reslicing.

Add to Default

Adds the (if both are present) combined transformation to the reset positions of the selected image buffers.

Add to Current

Adds the (if both are present) combined transformation to the current positions of the selected image buffers.
