Nifti (NIfTI) is a file format that is used to store medical imaging data such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans. We can use the NiBabel library to read the Nifti file. If you want to learn about computer vision, I strongly advise you to read This book.
Step 1: Install the NiBabel library
pip install nibabel
Step 2: Read the Nifti File
# Import the Nibabel library import nibabel as nib # Load the Nifti File image = nib.load('data.nii') # Convert the image data as a NumPy array array = image.get_fdata() # Display the shape of NumPy array print(array.shape)
