Distance Transform from a label map calculated by Steve Pieper using the NumpyScript module created by Luca Antiga. See Slicer3:Python for more info.
Exploring DTI visualization using the Neurosurgical Tutorial. A virtual probe (fiducial) was positioned in the motor cortex and used as a seed for tractography. The region adjacent to the tumor was used as a seeding area for a separate tractography, which is represented as thin lines with ellipsoid glyphs.

Cardiac segmentation and CT Volume Rendering, February 2008
Using data and segmentations from the collaboration with Boston Children's Hospital Pediatric Cardiology.
Partial image update using OpenIGTLink, February 2008
OpenIGTLink allows an external imaging scanner (Ultrasound/CT/MR) to update part of a volume, which has already been loaded on the Slicer. This is helpful if the imaging plane sweeps the subject, and images are transfered to the Slicer on-the-fly.
The First MRML node rendering using CUDA February 2008
Cuda Volume Rendering provides a Volume Rendering Method on the new and advanced NVidia Hardware.
The First Implementation of OpenIGTLink, January 2008
OpenIGTLink protocol provides plug-and-play connectivity to tracking devices, imagers (MR, ultrasound ...) and other medical devices. A real-time image transfer to the Slicer in 10 fps is demonstrated in the screenshot.

In the NAMIC All Hands Meeting 2008, the bi-directional socket communication has been established between the Tracker Daemon in Slicer 3 and IGSTK server which acquires tracking data from device and sends it to Tracker Daemon. The speed of communication is controlled by Slicer.

Module choose and navigation functionality integrated into the application toolbar to create more space for module GUIs on the side panel. Slice Controller widgets also updated to have more functionality available, a button to link and unlink their control, and an improved visual design.

Shows that a single pixel voxel in black is exactly bounded by a unit cube in RAS space. Also the blinking eye buttons for slice visiblility are hooked up and there is now a red-yellow-green color coding for the slice windows (carried over from slicer2).

Test of the new logo widget for adding module-specific watermark logos directly in the 3d view. Uses a vtkLogoWidget from VTK cvs head. Kitware is working on cmake support to notify developers when a VTK cvs update is needed. Once that is done, the logo code will be added to slicer3 svn.
About the VisualBlog
The VisualBlog is meant to be an easy place to upload screenshot so that both developers and outside observes can track the progress of the project.
Many thanks to developers and users for contributing their images here.
