Introduction

The community of Slicer developers is proud to announce the release of Slicer 3.4.

  • Click here to download different versions of Slicer3 and find pointers to the source code, mailing lists and bug tracker. *Please note that Slicer continues to be a research package and is not intended for clinical use. Testing of functionality is an ongoing activity with high priority, however, some features of Slicer3 are not fully tested.
  • The Slicer 3.4 Training page provides a series of courses for learning how to use Slicer3. The portfolio contains self-guided presentation and sample data sets

The main slicer.org pages provide a guided tour to the application, training materials, and the development community. New users should start there because we try to keep the pages organized and up to date.
