Extension Description

This tool provides an Editor-Effect for semi-automated segmentation of tumors and hot lymph nodes in PET scans. A detailed description and evaluation of the method can be found in Beichel et al. (2016): "Semiautomated Segmentation of Head and Neck Cancers in 18F-FDG PET Scans: A Just-Enough-Interaction Approach", in Medical Physics. http://dx.doi.org/10.1118/1.4948679

PET Tumor Segmentation Extension


  • PET Tumor Segmentation Segment Editor Effect for use with Slicer's Segment Editor
  • PETTumorSegmentation Plugin: This plugin provides the functionality used by the editor effects for the actual processing. It is hidden from the GUI and not intended to be used directly.
