We propose to extend 3D Slicer to support RT research under the Software Platform and Adaptive Radiotherapy Kit (SparKit) project. OCAIRO investigators we have identified some of the key features required from a 3D Slicer based RT research platform. This project week we are going to finish integrating our first new feature to Slicer4 - the import of DICOM RT datasets.

Key Investigators

  • Queen's University: Csaba Pinter, Andras Lasso
  • Toronto UHN: Kevin Wang
  • MGH: Greg Sharp


  • Add DICOM-RT import functionality to Slicer4
  • Outline the data format in which the structure set is stored
  • Test it on the most real-life datasets possible

Approach, Plan

  • Utilize new DCMTK (that contains DCMRT) in CTK
  • Convert internal DCMRT structures to MRML nodes (models, labelmaps, etc.)
  • Apply necessary GUI changes that are needed for RT import in CTK


  • Slicer4 build OK
  • Sample data collected
  • DCMRT build in Slicer OK

Delivery Mechanism

This work will be delivered to the NA-MIC Kit as a Slicer loadable module. The source code is available in the SparKit repository
