Over the last year or so I have, on some machines using ITK, run into troubles regarding the image position header being written incorrectly.
Short example of the problem:
I use the ImageSeriesWriter to write 2D images from a 3D image. In order to add the correct image positions to each 2D image I add that header to the metadata dictionary. You know like all the examples and guides tell you to do . Almost all of the time it works perfectly and the image position gets written correct. However, on some ubuntu machines the header gets written incorrectly ALL of the time.
**Correct header: ** (0020,0032) ?? (DS) [-119.013374328613-125.03343963623-26.4799346923828] # 52,3 Image Position (Patient)
**Incorrect header: ** (0020,0032) ?? (DS) [-119\4.44659081257122e-323\3.93542391372225e-62 ] # 48,3 Image Position (Patient)
As you can see y and z positions are incorrectly set to zero. I have been trying to locate the error for a while know and there seems to be no posts about it for the last two years. However, there seems to be older post (such as https://itk.org/pipermail/insight-users/2011-August/042224.html) reporting similar issues. But because ITK (I guess) has moved to github I cannot read the bugfix commits or comments to check if I am affected by the same issue.
Does anyone know if this old bug has been fixed or has some inputs for me ?
