Easiest and most direct is to use the 3-D extension to NIH Image (freely
and widely available by ftp) to do a projection through your slices - you
have to have very good alignment though and it will not do very good
interpolation bewteen slices (for that you'll need a high end pkg) but it
is certainly useful and will give you a feeling for what kind of points
need to be addressed before you blow a bunch of money and/or time.

Check out the comp.graphics newsgroup hierarchy - very useful FAQs, SW
evals, etc.
