Introduction to Opensource Software Slicer and its Application to Image-Guided Therapy

Course Syllabus

The purpose of this IBMISPS 2009 pre-congress course is to provide the members of the research community with a practical experience of the image processing, 3D visualization, and Image-Guided Therapy capabilities of the Open Source 3D Slicer software platform. The curriculum is hands-on which means that participants are required to attend the workshop with a suitable laptop, preloaded with the software and sample data as specified below. Attendance is limited in order to ensure quality interactions between the faculty and participants.
