The 3DSlicer Registration Case Library Project

Key Investigators

  • BWH: Dominik Meier, Ron Kikinis


This work is part of a 2-year effort to supplement the 3DSlicer Registration Module with extensive set of documentation, tutorials and use case scenarios. We seek to build a comprehensive library of use cases for every form of registration challenge using 3DSlicer. Each library entry will contain a dataset along with Registration Parameter Presets and a guided tutorial on how to successfully register the images.

Approach, Plan

The Slicer Registration Library relies mainly on user contributions for content. There is an official call for datasets to all slicer users to consider a unique time-limited service for any dataset/registration problem that is not yet in the library. Users who agree to share one anonymized dataset for the library will have that dataset registered by us and the solution and strategies posted. Look here for an example of a library entry.
Our plan for the project week is to first get a survey of all projects using registration. We hope to catch most of these projects from reviewing these project description pages, so it is important that if you use registration in your procedure, please make sure to mention explicitly. We will collect as many example cases as possible, and select a few focus cases with particularly vexing registration challenges and begin to develop the appropriate tailored registration strategies.


  • use of ITK registration cost function to validate FE-based model of intraoperative brainshift -> expose ITK cost function: develop a user module to measure/visualize MI over a specified region
  • DTI to freesurfer labelmap
  • atlas-based registration/classification (prodcedure for translating physical alignment to image-space congruence)
