Hi Zahra,

Make sure you read the whole data, not only the positive part using Matlab. ImageJ software also reads dicom images. Just go File->import->image sequence then select the folder where your dicom data is living, then you can check if the voxel values in the lungs are ~1000 HUs.

I hope it helps.

Subject: [Gate-users] Hounsfield units

Dear all

I have a CT image of the head and I want to import it to my Gate program.  I have calculated the Hounsfield units based on the material compositions and it starts from negative values.  When I check my CT image by MATLAB to see the Hounsfield units on the image, these units start from zero, and when I check with Amira software, it starts from negative values.  Do I have to start with negative units ​​or I should shift these values and start from zero to use them ​​in the gate program?  What do you suggest to me to make sure  I choose the right way to use in my gate program?

Best regards
