Hi Eva,
You can perform a rotation of a specified number of degrees about the  
X, Y, or Z axes using the command "turn" - however, these are the  
"laboratory" axes (X horizontal in plane of screen, Y vertical in  
plane of screen, Z normal to screen) and not necessarily the data  
axes, unless you align them by clicking the Orient button on Volume  
Viewer before issuing the command.

Man page for "turn"

I hope this helps,
