Module Description

The fiducial tool bar icon (identified inside a red box) on the Slicer tool bar is shown.

Use Cases

This module can be used to obtain a volumetric segmentation of a region of interest. Most frequently used for these scenarios:

  • Example volumetric segmentation of a tumor given a set of fiducial points selected on the tumor:
User input in the form of fiducials
Segmentation result: Multiplier=2.5, Neighborhood radius=1, Number of Iterations=5

This module is useful for obtaining a 2-class segmentation. The fiducials are placed on parts of the image that correspond to the target (foreground). The segmentation can be refined by modifying the number of iterations, the multiplier, and the neighborhood radius options available on the user interface panel. Additionally, the user may also place additional fiducials on the image.
