Introduction and Acknowledgements
This is the DICOM / DICOM-RT import module. It allows you to select a directory containing DICOM-RT structure sets and/or dose, which it will convert into 3D Slicer labelmap and/or scalar image. This module also loads the DICOM CT image without requiring the need to use the Slicer volume import wizard.
Note: In a Slicer, a labelmap voxel can only belong to one structure. However, DICOM-RT allows a region to belong to any number of strucutres. Therefore, importing DICOM-RT structure sets as Slicer labelmaps will usually result in a loss of data. This module uses a "last structure wins" strategy for assigning labels to overlapping volumes.
Note: Because DICOM-RT structures are specified as polylines, there is a small loss of fidelity when they are converted into rasterized volumes.
