Module Name

Region Selector


General Information

The purpose of this module is to provide a simple mechanism for the selection of a region of interest. The arguments for the region definition are four points in each of the three coordinate planes.

The resulting volume traces on every coordinate plane stack will be the smallest rectangle containing all four points defined in that direction.

The user should place the corners in such a way as to leave the object of interest inside the imaginary rectangle described roughly by them.

Quick Tour of Features and Use

There is only one panel available in this module:

In every coordinate plane we place four fiducials. 
We have a different collection of fiducials for every plane. The 
resulting volume is the smallest square parallelepiped that contains 
all twelve fiducials.
