Clinical research: 3D Slicer is used in real-time navigation of breast cancer surgery at Queen's University, Kingston, ON, Canada. The method is published in the following paper: Ungi T, Gauvin G, Lasso A, Yeo CT, Pezeshki P, Vaughan T, Carter K, Rudan J, Engel CJ, Fichtinger G. Navigated Breast Tumor Excision Using Electromagnetically Tracked Ultrasound and Surgical Instruments. IEEE Trans Biomed Eng. 2016 Mar;63(3):600-6..
Pre-conference tutorial session Building image-guidance systems from open-source components at IEEE EMBC in Chicago (August 26, 2014).
Demo at CARS 2014 in Fukuoka, Japan. Slicer is connected to a KUKA robot for visualization of 3D models of the robot, the anatomy, and the workspace. The system is originally developed at NA-MIC Summer Project Week.
Multiplanar and volume rendered view of a CT scan of a Granny Smith apple. In plane resolution is 0.33 mm, and 1.25 mm slice thickness.
The Multidimensional data extension allows creating, editing, and visualizing multidimensional data sets in 3D Slicer. Browsing, replaying 4D volumes, reviewing deforming 3D models, replaying tracked ultrasound, tool navigation data in 3D, applying time-varying transforms are now all possible.
UKFTractography is a module for computing tractography of DWI images using an unscented Kalman filter. Because of its 2-tensor algorithm, it is able to model fiber crossings and capture many more fibers than a single tensor algorithm.
Some applications of the SlicerIGT extension for image-guided and navigated medical interventions. For more information see the Slicer IGT website.
ShapePopulationViewer is an external tool that allows the user to dynamically interact with multiple surfaces at the same time : an interesting tool for shape visualisation and comparison. It now is available as a Slicer Extension.
The Subject hierarchy module and mechanism organizes and handles loaded data, providing processing and analysis features through plugins. It aspires to be a convenient central organizing point for many of the operations that 3D Slicer and its extensions perform.
The Data Store allows a user to easily upload and download MRB files.
The Contours module manages contours in the RT extension package.
A new extension allows to run matlab scripts without having to recompile Slicer. For more information see here
The Cardiac MR Extension provides tools for segmentation and analysis of heart tissue and structure for treatment and diagnosis of Atrial Fibrillation.
CarreraSlice is an interactive segmentation tool. It combines a fast implementation of the GrowCut algorithm for the 'initialization' phase with KSlice, an interactive algorithm based on Level Sets, for the 'refinement' stage.
MultiVolumeExplorer with support for charting. See here for more information.
