Revision as of 18:16, 6 June 2012

Welcome to the 3D Slicer Wiki pages !

How to use this site:

  • The Slicer Web pages provide a guided tour to the application, training materials, and the development community. New users should start there because we try to keep it organized and up to date.
  • These wiki pages are more free-form, with notes and reference pages that help support developers and users across multiple sites. You will find good information on the wiki, but it's possible that it's out of date or describes features that are still in the planning phase.



3D Slicer is:

  • A software platform for the analysis and visualization of medical images and for research in image guided therapy.
  • A free, open source software available on multiple operating systems (Windows, MAC, Linux).
  • Extensible, with powerful plug-in capabilities for adding algorithms and applications.


For the latest Slicer news, visit the community forum:

https://discourse.slicer.org

To learn how the Slicer community transitioned away from mailing lists. See below

  • Thanks to the stewardship of Isaiah Norton and the kindness of the Discourse organization, Slicer forum is graciously hosted under the condition we keep the word "discourse" in the URL: https://discourse.slicer.org
  • A group of Slicer community members have extensively discussed the advantages of an updated forum software, and developed a consensus at the 24th Project Week that we test Discourse as a new home for questions and discussion by users and developers of Slicer and any extension/topical communities who are interested.
