Hi AFNI experts,
The dicom files in my fMRI experiment were transformed into the .nii format by MRIconvert firstly before preprocessing.
I found some fields in the .nii files generated by different versions of MRIconvert are different, though the inputted data are exactly the same.
nifti_tool -diff_hdr -infiles ver1.nii ver2.nii
  name                offset  nvals  values
  ------------------- ------  -----  ------

  datatype              70      1    512
  pixdim                76      8    -1.0 1.5 1.5 1.49995 2.0 0.0 0.0 0.0

  quatern_d            264      1    0.985187
  qoffset_y            272      1    -77.154175
  qoffset_y            272      1    102.401825
  qoffset_z            276      1    2.340701
  qoffset_z            276      1    -61.537697

The files ver1.nii and ver2.nii are generated by the different version of MRIconvert with the same data inputted.
Whether these fields with the different values can affect the results of some steps in preprocessing in afni?
For example, whether the difference in the values of the field 'slice_duration' can change the 3dTshift results?
Thank you in advance!
Yu

Can the wrong values in these fields of NIFTI files affect the preprocessing results in AFNI?
