nibabel is a Python package that provides read and write access to some common medical and neuroimaging file formats, including: ANALYZE (plain, SPM99, SPM2), GIFTI, NIfTI1, MINC, as well as PAR/REC. NiBabel is the successor of PyNIfTI.
The various image format classes give full or selective access to header (meta) information and access to the image data is made available via NumPy arrays.
