I would thinl that you do not necessarily need to worry about this. My
best guess would be that the mean B0 has a lower resolution and thus
reslicing adapts the voxel sizes of your hi-res T2 to the low-res B0.
The lesion volume will likely not change as 2131 small voxels may be
identical to 170 bigger ones. If you want to avoid reslicing, select
estimate only (although this depends on what you want to do with the
lesion map later on).

Prior to running 'coregister: estimate & reslice" my probability lesion map has about 2131 voxels; however, after coregistration, my probability lesion map drops to approximately 170 voxels. Given I am running volumetric-type analyses, this is definitely a problem. Below is what I am entering into coregister:
