How do I take slices through a volume?

Dear all,
I have a collection of image slices that are packaged as an image deck. (One could imagine the slices stacked upon each other forming a 3D volume.) I realize that the "imslice" function allows me to extract a particular image slice by its index (thus obtaining planar sections with a normal vector parallel to the Zaxis), but is there any good code out there that allows me to extract a specified planar section with a normal vector that is not parallel to the Zaxis?
Thanks,
