Project Description

An extension of 3D Slicer to support segmentation-based measurements with DICOM-based import and export of the results.

Objective Approach and Plan Progress and Next Steps
  • utilizes dcmqi library for reading/writing of DICOM SEG/SR
  • demonstrate Quantitative Reporting extension
  • improve documentation
  • discuss next steps and specific open issues
  • get rid of hacks that hide SegmentEditor components individually by iterating over GUI components
  • add functionality for continuing a saved report
  • communication of measurements tables and integrated support into Slicer Table node (CSV/JSON/other approaches - see https://github.com/QIICR/QuantitativeReporting/issues/105)
  • integration of measurement quantities/units into Slicer for volume nodes
  • discussions with Csaba Pinter about SegmentEditor and making UI components easier accessible to developers by providing methods
  • implementation for continuing a partially completed measurement report
    • works with Slicer created measurement report
    • problems:
      • recalculation of measurements might not be possible (no information about algorithms that have been used for that)
      • Quantitative Reporting for now only uses SegmentStatistics module for computing measurements
    • TODO: reference to original measurement report for being able to trace modifications
