This document is the user manual for EMMA (Extensible MATLAB Medical Analysis) developed at the Montreal Neurological Institute. This package consists of a set of MATLAB .m files and programs written in C, designed to ease the analysis of medical image data. The entire package runs under MATLAB 4.X.

This document assumes that the reader is familiar with manipulation of medical images (specifically images stored in the MINC file format), and simply wishes to know how image manipulation is possible using EMMA and MATLAB.

The authors would like to thank Sean Marrett of the McConnell Brain Imaging Centre for being the driving force behind this project. He provided invaluable guidance when all seemed lost.
