Back to AHM Schedule


The objective of this break out session is discuss 1) the current Slicer activities related to ultrasound guided therapies, 2) identify shared interest effort overlap, and common unmet needs, 3) produce common statement from participants about the action plans. Everyone is welcome to attend.

    • Keywords: OpenIGTLink, needle guidance
  • X:XX-X:XX, Project introduction 3, Elvis Chen, GPU volume rendering. We have developed (clean room implementation) a stand-along, CUDA-based, VTK class for volume rendering. It is meant to be a drop-in replacement for vtkVolumeMapper. In addition, we implemented multi-dimentional transfer function, allowing much concise pixel-classification and visualization. Video demo will be given, source code will be made available.
