Hmm... that's an interesting problem. I'm having trouble imagining how you'd
take a slice from a 3d file and put it back in though. Are you talking about
a 3D volumetric-image file? Like, a 3-dimensional array of pixels? If you
are, then I'm pretty sure PIL doesn't support that kind of file. And if
you're not talking about that kind of file, then... I have no idea what
you're talking about. :)

With a file that big, and a format that ... custom, you're going to need to
write or find a special slicer/inserter.

Is this for some kind of medial application? Like MRI?
