Extension Description

VolumeClipLogo.png

This extension contains modules for clipping image volumes with arbitrary surfaces or region of interest boxes.

Modules

  • Volume clip with model
    • Removes volume contents inside or outside the selected surface model
    • User may define and dynamically edit a 3D clipping surface by markup points (uses Delaunay triangulation, therefore it mostly generates convex surfaces)
    • For incremental clipping select the input volume also as output volume
  • Volume clip with ROI box
    • Removes volume contents inside or outside the selected region of interest box
    • For incremental clipping select the input volume also as output volume

Use Cases

  • Remove patient table from CT volumes
  • Clip irrelevant image areas of the input volume before segmentation
  • Create quick mask for registration (apply the processing twice, with zero and non-zero fill value and with the clip outside checkbox enabled and disabled)
