Another post:

was also asking about medical image processing. Maybe you and the
author of that other post could collaborate. In that post he was
wanting to use variants because the number of dimensions was not
known until runtime. Is that your situation? If so then you might
be interested in this:

which, unlike multi_array, allows the dimensions to be specified
at runtime and I don't think would suffer as much rumtime overhead
as Alle's incomplete attempt to use variants.
