Discussing the progress about the Patient Hierarchy module and implement further enhancements and utilisations.

Approach, Plan

The approach is to have a mechanism that maps the DICOM hierarchy to be used within Slicer. This involves visualizing and editing the loaded DICOM hierarchy, connecting the data objects that are connected on a DICOM level, and utilizing this knowledge for the widest imaginable manner.

The plan for the project week is to give a short demo of the current functionality and solicit feedback, then continuing to work on implementation.


  • Patient Hierarchy module shows the hierarchy, enables reparenting and adding from outside the Patient Hierarchy.
  • Some steps toward utilization of Patient Hierarchy has been implemented (SlicerRT #278)

Delivery Mechanism

This work will be delivered to the NA-MIC Kit as a Slicer Loadable Module inside the SlicerRT extension. In the long term, integrating this functionality in the Slicer core would be desirable.
