Multidimensional data is an extension of 3D Slicer to allow creating and visualization of higher-dimension data nodes, such as 4D volumes, models changing in time, markups changing in time, sequences of transforms, scene camera trajectory, or even sequence of sequences. Software features include:
- Synthetic dose volume generation for testing.
- Motion simulation for systematic and random errors.
- Dose population histogram generation based on motion simulation.
- A complete simulation module for margin calculation.
- Comparison of different RT plans with specific margin using dose population histogram
- Evaluation of effect of different margin in RT plan
- Calculation of PTV margin
- SlicerRT: SlicerRT and Margin Calculator are complementary software. Margin Calculator focuses specifically on the RT plan margin calculation, while SlicerRT aims for providing an easy-to-use interface for a wide range of stable, well-tested radiotherapy related features.
- Gel Dosimetry: Slicelet facilitating a streamlined workflow to perform gel dosimetry analysis for commissioning linacs and evaluating new dose calculation procedures
