Medical image conversion utility and library

The Medical Image Conversion library consists of a library, a command line utility, and a GUI interface for converting and manipulating medical images. It can convert between commonly used formats in (freely available) research tools, while preserving medical parameters like patient information, slice orientation, voxel dimension and pixel quantitation. The program can also read unsupported files without compression, print pixel values, or extract/reorder specified images. The library can also be used as a framework for your own image format.
