Discuss and test DICOM current state and use cases in slicer4

Approach, Plan

  • Test DICOM networking with sample servers.
  • Review layout of the widget.
  • Consider how DWI and DICOMRT should integrate with DICOM module
  • Review the Slicer Data Bundle (lollipop)
  • Consider how 4D data should integrate ?
  • In general, modules should be able to access all DICOM fields of a loaded image
  • Introduce DICOM import plugin modules? (modules that are notified when the user selects a DICOM file for loading and can extract various objects: images, models, etc.)
  • Consider how DICOM module mechanisms could be used by the CLI modules for accessing/parsing DICOM studies?


  • Significant discussion as part of DICOM and DICOM RT breakout sessions
  • General agreement with overall goals for networking
  • Specific feedback collected on interface
    • Need better display Patient/Study browser (ctkDICOMModel)
    • Need to improve SQL schema (ctkDICOMDatabase)
  • New infrastructure
    • DICOM Module needs hooks for loading specific DICOM types
      • DICOM RT
      • DWI DICOM
      • (perhaps) DICOM SR
    • Need to have software process for contributing enhancements upstream to CTK and DCMTK
