People have asked about opening DICOM files here in askUbuntu. But I don't think anyone has asked specifically how to extract images from different series and combine them into a new series.

I have a DICOM CD of MRI images I want to convert into 3D printable objects.

Unfortunately each series contains only 1 normal resolution set of slices. The other 2 orthogonal set of slices are of poor-low-resolution-quality. I should point out, there are 3 series and in each there is the 1 normal resolution set of slices. And if I could find a way of extracting the 1 normal resolution set of slices from the 3 series and combine them into a new series I would than have what I want ... 3 normal resolution set of slices all orthogonal to one another in 1 series.

I have tried 2 different software packages including Envesalius (which you can download for Ubuntu here) to create 3D printable object from CAT and MRI scans. Neither of them do well with (tolerate) the poor-low-resolution-quality images. And I have not been able to make them use just the normal resolution images from different series.

If anyone sees an answer to this problem I would appreciate hearing about it.

-thanks
