CT volume image orientation correction


I have a large set of ct images of heart. The ct volumes created from the image set need to be processed. But before processing, I need to check the orientation of each volume to see the long axis of the heart pointing “upward”. Because the orientation may vary for each volume. How can I automate the orientation check so that it does not need to be done manually?

You probably want OrientImageFilter. This should work properly, as long as meta-data is correct. Deviations from that should be rare.

FYI, the question is already being discussed here: https://discourse.vtk.org/t/ct-volume-image-orientation-correction/2490/4
