Module Description

The Contours module manages contours and contour hierarchies.

Use Cases

  • Load as ribbon, then compute DVH; the user wants to see the contours in 3D
  • Edit contour 1, edit contour 2; see contour 1 while editing contour 2
  • Create contour node, convert it to (empty) labelmap; do contouring on the labelmapo representation; convert to model
  • Create/load labelmap or surface, create Contour node from that in Patient Hierarchy module
Contours module GUI
Contours representations



Panels and their use

  • Current contour(s): Currently selected contour node (vtkMRMLContourNode) or conotur hierarchy node (vtkMRMLContourHierarchyNode)
  • Active representation: The active representation (Ribbon model / Indexed labelmap / Closed surface model) of the selected contour. If a hierarchy is selected in which the active representations of the contained contours do not match, Various is indicated
  • Change active representation: This box contains controls to convert from one representation to another
