Flipping images

Jump to: navigation, search

MIPAV allows you to flip images either horizontally, or vertically, or invert the order of slices in the image dataset. The last option is available via the Utilities>Flip Image> In Depth menu.
To flip an image,

  1. Call Utilities > Flip > Horizontal, Vertical of In Depth.
  2. Then, complete the dialog box that appears, and press OK.
  3. After a few moments, the flopped image replaces the original image in the same image window. For dialog box options, refer to Figure 21.

To invert the order of images in datasets
1 Open an image that contains slices.
2 Select Utilities > Flip> Flip in Depth.
A status message appears and indicates that the software is reordering the slices in the dataset. In a moment or two the MIPAV window refreshes, and the image window in which the original dataset appeared displays the reordered slices.
