svk raw data readers handle acquisition-specific data reorganization. This includes vendor-specific header parsing and acquisition-specific data reordering and resampling. The output of an svkImageReader is always an svkImageData object, represented by a DICOM header and data sampled on a regular grid that is suitable for FFT-based reconstruction. This permits the use of a common set of independent downstream reconstruction and processing algorithms, independent of the acquisition sequence or vendor data format. An svkImageReaderFactory reads the raw data files to create the appropriate type of svkImageReader for the specific input format and acquisition type. Vendor- and acquisition-specific readers load data and associated mappers resample data to a regular grid.
