MRIcron available on BLiSS

MRICron, the next generation of Chris Rorden's MRIcro, has been installed on BLiSS (/opt/bliss/mricron/). There are currently environment compatibility issues with the GUI for MRICron itself, but the command line programs and the GUI for MRIcron's nonparamatric mapping program, npm, work. The command line program dcm2nii is an efficient way to convert dicom files to nifti format. For dti data, this program will also automatically extract b value and direction information from the dicom headers and save it to text files.
