Welcome to the 3D Slicer Wiki pages !

How to use this site:

  • The Slicer Web pages provide a guided tour to the application, training materials, and the development community. New users should start there because we try to keep it organized and up to date.
  • These wiki pages are more free-form, with notes and reference pages that help support developers and users across multiple sites. You will find good information on the wiki, but it's possible that it's out of date or describes features that are still in the planning phase.




3D Slicer is:

  • A software platform for the analysis (including registration and interactive segmentation) and visualization (including volume rendering) of medical images and for research in image guided therapy.
  • A free, open source software available on multiple operating systems: Linux, MacOSX and Windows
  • Extensible, with powerful plug-in capabilities for adding algorithms and applications.

Features include:

  • Multi organ: from head to toe.
  • Support for multi-modality imaging including, MRI, CT, US, nuclear medicine, and microscopy.
  • Bidirectional interface for devices.

There is no restriction on use, but Slicer is not approved for clinical use and intended for research. Permissions and compliance with applicable rules are the responsibility of the user. For details on the license see here

  • Development of slicer3.4 is still under way. To check the status, go to the bug tracker and search for the tag "3.4 Targeted fix". Our plan is to fix anything with that tag before branching the release. http://na-mic.org/Mantis/main_page.php The svn trunk for slicer3 is still in "feature freeze" mode, meaning that only fixes should be checked in. Any new development should occur in svn branches for now.
  • Developers, please be sure to apply the "3.4 Targeted fix" to anything you are working on for the release.

January

  • A product release of Slicer 3.4 is scheduled for Feb/March
  • There will be a code freeze on Feb 4, 2009
  • Slicer3 and related research project were highlighted and demoed as part of the External Advisory Board meeting of the Neuroimage Analysis Center.

  • Andras Jakab won second place in Kitware's medical image visualization contest!. The image combines slice viewing, models, volume rendering, and tractography applied to a gamma knife neurooncology radiotherapy planning case. Andras used slicer's registration tools to fuse CT and diffusion MR into a multimodal scene.
  • A NA-MIC Workshop at MICCAI addressed the creation of ITK-based command line modules for 3D Slicer.
  • Slicer user Attila Nagy presented on Slicer3 for inner ear imaging (Slides - Hungarian)
  • Attila also provided patches to build Slicer3 and most of Slicer2 using the latest versions of Solaris and the optimized Sun C++ compilers.
