Extension Description

SlicerProstate extension hosts various modules to facilitate

  • processing and management of prostate image data
  • utilizing prostate images in image-guided interventions
  • development of the imaging biomarkers of the prostate cancer

While the main motivation for developing the functionality contained in this extension was prostate cancer imaging applications, they can also be applied in different contexts.

Modules

  • Distance Map Based Registration: module that can be used for deformable registration between prostate gland segmentations in MR and TRUS
  • Segmentation Smoothing: module to smooth the staircase aliasing effect commonly found in prostate segmentations done in typical MRI data
  • QuadEdgeSurfaceMesher: module to reduce the number of triangles and smooth the surface recovered with the Marching Cubes algorithm
  • DWModeling: module to fit commonly used models to Diffusion Weighted MRI of the prostate
