Segmentation of tumors and hot lymph nodes in PET scans. The software is based on the thesis of Markus L. van Tol (2014): "A Graph-Based Method for Segmentation of Tumors and Lymph Nodes in Volumetric PET Images" and implemented as a Slicer Editor Effect.


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