Exporting Anatomic Traces as UCF's

The UCF file format is a format that is used by a variety of surface analysis tools in the UCLA Laboratory of Neuroimaging. MultiTracer does not allow exported UCF's to be reloaded for display or editing, so it is always a good idea to save the traces in addition to exporting them.

The names of the exported UCF files are determined by the names that were used to define the structures before tracing them.

To export UCF's

  1. From the "File" menu, select "Export Contours as UCF's"
  2. The UCF's will be exported to directories that are defined with respect to the directory from which MultiTracer was launched unless you have reset the working directory by selecting "Set Working Directory" from the "File" menu.

UCF files can be remapped into other files using the Automated Image Registration (AIR) package. The AIR programs reslice_ucf, reslice_unwarp_ucf and reslice_warp_ucf will transform UCF files.
