This improvement of NifTI metadata for neuroimaging is a nice idea. I
wonder why this has not happened before.
When I was working with PET images from Siemens I had to hack into this CSA
headers to obtain some parameters which then had to go together with the
NifTI files everywhere. Working with DICOM is the clinical way to go and
report, but for research it's a pain in the ass, also when working with
different vendors.
