Extension Description

iGyne is an open source software for MR-Guided Interstitial Gynecologic Brachytherapy. It enables on-time processing of the intra-operative MRI data via a DICOM connection to the scanner followed by a multi-stage registration of CAD models of the template and the obturator to the patient images. This allows the virtual placement of interstitial needles during the intervention. Software features include:

  • Loading of Applicator CAD models and MR images
  • Initial registration of CAD model of the Template to MR images
  • Registration Refinement
  • Visualization of Registration
  • Needle Selection and Display of Virtual Needles relative to Applicator CAD models and Tumor Segmentation


Use Cases

Sample data and CAD models to use with modules.


Igyne Tutorial (a .PPT file with 18 pages) will guide you step-by-step through the process of loading of applicator CAD models, performing registration, selecting virtual needle and viewing the results within Slicer4. It will take about 10 minutes to finish this tutorial.
