This can parse files in the Neuroimaging Informatics Technology Initiative format (version 1). Currently, data (as opposed to the header) can only be read from ".nii" files (files that include both the header and the data in one file), you can still read the header from a header-only file though.Note that the output is compatible with what is output by nrrd-js. The main area where this breaks down (so far) is encoding orientation information. The NIfTI file format allows for two different transformations in one file (with various options for specifying the transformations). In contrast, the NRRD format only supports a very simple scheme whereby the "data axes" can be mapped to basis vectors in the physical space (in addition to another scheme more or less corresponding to "method 1" in the NIfTI format). Currently, nifti-js simply discards one type of transformation (the sform transformation).
