   wb_command -volume-distortion
      <warpfield> - the warpfield to compute the distortion of
      <volume-out> - output - the output distortion measures

      [-fnirt] - MUST be used if using a fnirt warpfield
         <source-volume> - the source volume used when generating the warpfield

      [-circular] - use the circle-based formula for the anisotropic measure

      [-log2] - apply base-2 log transform

      Calculates isotropic and anisotropic distortions in the volume warpfield.
      At each voxel, the gradient of the absolute warpfield is computed to
      obtain the local affine transforms for each voxel (jacobian matrices),
      and strain tensors are derived from them.  The isotropic component
      (volumetric expansion ratio) is the product of the three principal
      strains.  The default measure ('elongation') for the anisotropic
      component is the largest principal strain divided by the smallest.

      The -circular option instead calculates the anisotropic component by
      transforming the principal strains into log space, considering them as
      x-values of points on a circle 120 degrees apart, finds the circle's
      diameter, and transforms that back to a ratio.
