Key Investigators

  • Daniel Haehn, Rudolph Pienaar, Ellen Grant (Boston Children's Hospital)
  • Steve Pieper (Isomics Inc.)
  • Sonia Pujol (BWH)
  • Randy Gollub (MGH)

Project Description


Approach, Plan

We propose the following steps to create a high-level didactic content creation tool.

  • Enable switching between different testing scenarios (fetal brains, liver etc.)
  • Start with the existing Liver tutorial dataset and slides from the NA-MIC training core which includes a limited number of questions and answers
  • Load a visual scene linked to a question catalog from a defined file format (XML?)
  • The visualization and the questions are linked so answers can be provided in a fully interactive fashion (picking of a 3D mesh.. etc.)
  • Track user-specified answers and provide statistics after testing mode
  • Use 3D Slicer to generate content for training and testing
  • Prototype will be built on top of existing visualization infrastructure (XTK and web-based fetal atlas tool)
  • We envision a system somewhat like existing online quiz systems ([1], [2], [3], [4]) but with interactive 3D content drawn from the clinical use cases.
  • May use a helper library like SlickQuiz [5]


Draft Development Plans

Phase I: Developer Mockups

During the first half of 2013:

  • Hand-coded (html, javascript) mockups using to create content from existing content
    • Liver tutorial from Sonia
    • Fetal brain atlas
  • Identify best practices and experiment with different Question and Answer modes
  • Identify best practices and experiment with user interaction
  • Getting feedback on mi2b2 team and refining the mockups

Phase II: Limited Beta

During second half of 2013:

  • Identify first set of training content suitable for wider trial
  • Set up a site to host training materials
  • Open site to radiology trainees and gather feedback
  • Integrate infant brain atlas data as it becomes available

Phase III: Authoring Tools

During 2014:

  • Develop system for clinician-educators to easily create content
    • Define images, models, annotations, atlases to display
    • Define didactic material
    • Export content to hosting site
  • Leverage tools like Scene Views and WebGL Export from Slicer
