Key Investigators

  • Queen's: Adam Rankin


The goal is to create a module that can act as part of Slicer or independently as a Slicelet to provide an interface for the collection of ultrasound data, reconstruction of said data, and output of the volume in DICOM format.

Approach, Plan

  • Implement module
  • Debug module
  • Test module with sample data from PLUS server
  • Repeat until working!
  • Test behaviour of module as a Slicelet
  • Determine appropriate extension parent, or a new extension


  • Fixed bugs in Plus library/Plus server
  • Resolved UI sluggishness by using already-existing info in OpenIGTLink connector node

To do:

  • Complete implementation of module (partially complete)
    • Complete export of voxel data into DICOM series using DCMTK
  • Test module with sample data
  • Test behaviour of module as a Slicelet
    • Implement IGT connection mechanism within module UI

Delivery Mechanism

This work will be delivered to the NA-MIC Kit as a Slicer module, currently not packaged in an extension.
