Project Description

Objective Approach and Plan Progress and Next Steps
  • To create an extension that allows surgeons to create 3D models and plan liver resection surgeries.
  • This extension will contain modules for segmenting parts of the liver (parenchyma, tumours, portal and hepatic veins), as well as a module for creating a resection plan in the resulting 3D model.
  • Possible need for special type of model node when importing / saving data? (have a vtkMRMLResectionSurfaceNode, which will contain a list of control points for the resection surface)
  • Refactoring current modules to improve code and fit into extensions structure
  • Future work: Generalize to other types of resections (particularly pancreas)
  • Generally interested in customizing Slicer, as in the future we may tailor slicer for this "pipeline"
