Feature Request and Problem Reports

We have an issues tracker for Slicer 3. You need to create an account for filing reports. We keep track of both feature requests and bug reports. Make sure to use the pull-down in the upper right to select Slicer 3.

List of Modules in need of documentation

  • Requirements for modules to be added to the release:
    • The module is feature complete for the tasks advertised on 2-4-2009
    • The module has a test. See here for more information.
    • Module has documentation on the Slicer wiki. Please use the template provided here to structure your page.
    • Please add a pointer to the documentation on the Slicer wiki to the the Help tab of the module. See the Editor module in Slicer for an example.
    • The contributor (and their manager/advisor), the lab (with labs/institution logo) and the funding source (with grant number, logo optional) are listed in the Acknowledgement tab of the module. Please see the Models module for and example. The people listed in the acknowledgement will be the primary people for support and maintenance relative of the module.
  • If your module has documentation in Slicer 3.2, please copy/paste/update into the 3.4 version

Main GUI


  • Please copy the template linked below, paste it into your page and customize it with your module's information.


  • See above for info to be put into the Help and Acknowledgement Tabs
  • To put your lab's logo into a module, see here

Modules on NITRC

Slicer on NITRC

We are using NITRC as a repository for contributed modules. As a general rule, we do not test them ourselves, it is the downloaders job to ensure that they do what they want them to do.
