Image variable

The variable MIimage is used to store the image data.

A variable attribute (ie. an attribute pointing to a variable of the same name) that stores the real value maximum for the image. This variable should not vary over the image dimensions of MIimage. The units of this variable define the units of the image.
Like MIimagemax, but stores the real value minimum for the image. MIimagemax should not be present without MIimagemin and vice-versa.
A boolean attribute (with values MI_TRUE or MI_FALSE) that indicates whether the variable has been written in its entirety. This can be used to detect program failure when writing out images as they are processed : MIcomplete is set to MI_FALSE at the beginning and changed to MI_TRUE at the end of processing.
