oro.dicom 0.2.6

The latest version of oro.dicom (0.2.6) has been released on CRAN. New features/improvements include:
  • 33% increase in the speed of DICOM file handling
  • Automatic re-orientation/re-slicing of 3D and 4D volumes when converting from DICOM to NIfTI format

Work is underway to incorporate the best features across the different DICOM file-handling programs in multiple R packages.  It's not standardization, but we're on the right path!
