Copying images using the Clone command

Jump to: navigation, search

Suppose you need to copy an image dataset. To do so, you would use the Clone command on the Utility menu. This command generates a duplicate of the dataset and any information stored on the image, utility, algorithms, VOI, and paint layers.
Note: The Clone utility copies VOIs as well as the image, but it does not copy LUT information. Although we can observe its effects, it is not stored in an image layer. The Clone utility doesn't work for 4D images!

If two datasets are loaded into one image window, only the active dataset is cloned. When the dataset is duplicated, the duplicate dataset appears in its own image window.

To copy an image dataset, you simply select Utility > Clone (copy) in the MIPAV window. In a moment or two, a duplicate of the dataset appears in a new image window.
