Module Description

The lupus lesion segmentation applications are a group of tools for segmenting lesions in lupus patients using the T1-weighted, T2-weighted, and FLAIR images. This cross-platform tool can be run within Slicer3 as an external module, or directly as a command line.

Please see the DBP description for more information.

Usage

Use Cases, Examples

This module is specifically for segmenting lesions in lupus patients.
