Module Description


Multiparametric Image Review (mpReview) module is intended to support review and annotation of multiparametric image data. The driving use case for the development of this module was review and segmentation of the regions of interest in prostate cancer multiparametric MRI.


Release Notes

Installation: mpReview module is available as an extension that can be installed using Slicer Extension Manager. Make sure Extension Manager is enabled in the Application settings (as shown here). Follow the Extension Manager usage instructions to find and install Reporting extension. Once installed, you need to restart Slicer before you can use the Reporting module.

Potential issues related to extensions and multiple versions of Slicer: Slicer settings are stored in a dedicated system-specific location. These settings are not reset when you install a new Slicer version. If you observe unstable behavior, you could try resetting the settings as follows:

  • Linux and Mac: settings are stored in your home directory in .config folder (remove ~/.config or move it to a different location)
  • Windows: settings are located in C:\Users\<your_user_name>\AppData\Roaming\NA-MIC folder -- remove it or move to a different location. If you don't see this folder, it may be hidden. Try following these instructions to show it:

WARNING: the configuration file contains the path to your DICOM database. Once the configuration file is removed, you will need to re-configure the DICOM module to point it to the location of the database!

This limitation is also described on the Limitations page.

Please note that this module is under active development, and is being made available for the purposes of beta testing and feedback evaluation! The functionality, GUI and workflows may change in the subsequent releases of the module.

Use Cases

This module is designed for the annotation of multiparametric image data - i.e., when the same anatomy is scanned using different types of imaging during the same imaging study. This situation is specifically common in the interpretation of the prostate MRI, where T2, DWI, ADC, DCE and parametric maps need to be examined to characterize tissue at a given location.


Not available at this time. YouTube tutorial will be available soon!
