mia-2dseries2sets {-o string} [ options ...] [ Plugin type: 2dimage/io ...]


This program takes all image files that are given as free parameters on the command line and creates segmentation sets based on information found in the images. Used information is the z-location of the slice and the acquisition number. The code is taylored to used the according descriptors defined in the DICOM standard. All images with the same slice location will be grouped together in one segmentation set and ordered according to their aquisition number. Slice locations are rounded to three digits accuracy to make proper comparison of floating point values feasable.


-o, --out-directory=(output, required); string

output directory (needs to exist and be writable)


don't copy image files to output directory

Help & Info

-V, --verbose=warning; dict

verbosity of output, print messages of given level and higher priorities. Supported priorities starting at lowest level are:

info:Low level messages
trace:Function call trace
fail:Report test failures
error:Report errors
debug:Debug output
message:Normal messages
fatal:Report only fatal errors
--copyright=(); bool

print copyright information

-h, --help=(); bool

print this help

-?, --usage=(); bool

print a short help

--version=(); bool

print the version number and exit


--threads=-1; int

Maxiumum number of threads to use for processing,This number should be lower or equal to the number of logical processor cores in the machine. (-1: automatic estimation).


Create the segmentation sets from a series of DICOM images and copy the files to the output directory (copying is the default).
