I am new to the 3D Slicer software and I wanted to know if there is an option to rescale the DICOM images (For example from a Cone Beam CT) using the RescaleSlope and RescaleIntercept. To convert from the normal units found in CT data (a typical data set ranges from 0 to 4000 or so) we have to apply a linear transformation of the data using an equation given as:
hu = pixel_value * slope + intercept

While I can apply this transformation in Matlab, but it requires a lot of time to rescale every *.dcm file. Is there an option in 3D Slicer to do it? or is it automatically applied while loading the data into the software?. I will be grateful for the help.
