Module Description


The idea behind this module is to rapidly prototype a module for a specific clinical workflow. Since Slicer 2.x there have been several efforts to create modules that provides all functionalities required for a given clinical application with an integrated GUI. The issue of such approach is that there are many duplicated codes among the modules; the developers have to copy the entire module and modify just a few parts of it even if the new clinical applications share the large part of workflow with the existing modules.

Instead of implementing all features in a module, this module only binds the existing modules that are required for given clinical applications, and allows the users to go through those modules by simply clicking the navigation buttons. This module can create the navigation buttons, save the button format as a XML format file and reuse the button format by loading it.

Use Cases

The IGTWizard module is an effective tool to use existing modules and extensions without complicated mouse operations for given clinical applications. The module can create the wizard panel that has buttons to jump to the modules you listed, as well as "back" and "next" button to switch to the previous/next module in the clinical workflow.
