Module Description

Create a new volume that contains the extent of the input volume that falls within the space defined by two fiducials. Note that the fiducials may not exactly match the voxel boundaries of the input volume so not all cases are handled. The first two fiducials of the input list are used.


Examples, Use Cases & Tutorials

This can be useful when a target piece of anatomy is a small part of the source volume and you want to run a filter or other routine on only the subset.

Quick Tour of Features and Use

  • Pick the two input corner points by creating fidcucials.
  • Select the input volume to extract from.
  • Typically you will want to create a new output volume.

Clicking Apply will generate and display the subvolume.

Note: you can modify the fiducials and re-apply the module to tweak the extent of the subvolume.
