Notes on the Nrrd file format
The Nrrd file format, which is part of the NA-MIC kit, accurately represents N-dimensional raster information for scientific visualization and medical image processing. This format is used in Slicer to represent the necessary information about a DWI image volume, its anatomical orientation, and all the DWI-specific acquisition parameters for estimating the diffusion tensors. A detailed description of the Nrrd file format usage for DWI images and DTI data can be found here.
The DicomToNrrd module in Slicer can be used to convert Dicom data into Nrrd. A detailed tutorial describes how to construct a nhdr file from a set of images, which can be in Dicom or in other format such as Nifti, and a list of known gradients, using the Teem Library.

Preparation for the Workshop
The workshop combines oral presentations and instructor-led hands-on sessions with the participants working on their own laptop computers. All participants are required to come with their own laptop computer and install the software and datasets prior to the event.. A minimum of 1 GB of RAM (2 GB if possible) and a dedicated graphic accelerator with 64mb of on board graphic memory are required.
Please install the Slicer3.6.1 version appropriate to the laptop computer you'll be bringing to the tutorial:
- Windows: Slicer3-3.6.1-2010-08-23-win32.exe
- Linux 64: Slicer3-3.6.1-2010-08-23-linux-x86_64
- Linux 32: Slicer3-3.6.1-2010-08-20-linux-x86
- Mac Darwin: Slicer3-3.6.1-2010-08-20-darwin-x86
Slicer3 Training Survey
Participants are invited to join the Slicer user and Slicer developer community for questions and feature requests related to the software.
