Dimensions MINC 2.0

Each dimension of a MINC image volume/file is specified by its name. MINC2 defines standard naming conventions such as xspace, yspace, zspace (spatial dimensions), xfrequency, yfrequency, zfrequency (spatial frequency dimensions), tfrequency (temporal frequency dimension), time (time dimension) and finally vector-dimension (vector or complex data dimension). It is important to note that in MINC 2 there are certain default interpretations and properties associated with standard named dimensions. However, this does not place any limitations on MINC 2 dimensions definition as the user has full freedom to define new names, interpretations and properties for each dimension.
