Programmers who develop neuroimaging software applications frequently encounter the need to read/write data from/to different file formats. The LONI Java Image I/O plug-ins give Java programmers easy access to the metadata and image data stored in many common file formats (AFNI, ANALYZE, DICOM, ECAT, GE, INTERFILE, MINC, and NIFTI) produced by scanners and neuroimaging software. Following the Java Image I/O API Specification, all metadata is represented as XML DOM trees and all images are returned using the same standard class. Requires Java 1.4.2 or higher.
