Loading a FFS CT Volume using "Add Data" vs "Import Dicom files"


I am loading a CT dicom volume using:

  1. “Add Data”
  2. Correct display:


  1. "import dicom files
  2. Load Data
  3. Wrong display?

Does anyone know the reason of the difference?


Always use the DICOM module for loading DICOM data to void issues like this. Using Add Data bypasses some checks.

As it happens we are planning to make that behavior the default in the future:


Your example shows that “Add data” loaded the data incorrectly (the orientation marker - yellow guy - is inconsistent with the image content), while the DICOM module loaded it correctly.

If you want to change the orientation of slice views then you can use the sliders in Reformat module.
