I have a 3D .mrc file of cilia microtubules which was generated using electron microscopy. It is a cylindrical image, and I am trying to "cut it open" along the central axis to flatten it (still a 3D image). I am attaching a sample image of how it might look. Please help!

but the "flattening" can be achieved via logPolar() or linearPolar(), (you will need opencv3, 2.4 does not have it for python) like this:
