These functions convert the “qform” or “sform” information in a NIfTI header to or from a corresponding affine matrix. These two “xform” mechanisms are defined by the NIfTI standard, and may both be in use in a particular image header.

The qform and sform replacement functions are for advanced users only. Modifying the transforms without knowing what you're doing is usually unwise, as you can make the image object inconsistent.
