Dose Volume Histograms in Slicer


A dose volume histogram (DVH) is a tool used in radiation oncology to evaluate and compare treatment plans for safety and efficacy. Plastimatch currently has the capability to generate dose volume histograms, however this capability is not available in Slicer.

Approach, Plan

In order to use the plastimatch DVH, it will be necessary to store the information about the structure names (available at time of structure load) for later retrieval. We will attempt to store this information in the ITK image metadata.
