Develop a quick (< 10 min.) affine-based registration between multi-modality images for use in the AMIGO surgery suite. This module supports a fast registration using a small number of fiducials (3-5) and results in an accurately registered moving image. During this project week, we will refine the GUI and if necessary, complete work on the fiducial registration module in Slicer4.

Approach, Plan

First, we will complete the module logic for user interaction and finish testing our module's execution code. Once that is complete, we will finish any work on the GUI not already implemented using the selector and interactor nodes (custom slice viewer nodes in 3-Over-3 view, etc.). Finally, we will submit the module to end-users for feedback and suggestions for enhancement.


We already have a working module GUI and the execution code is complete. Testing code needs to be created and integrated once we understand how to implement it. The UI fiducial picking interaction needs to be completed. While most of the module's logic is complete, our dependency on the Slicer annotations classes requires those implementations to stabilize in Slicer4 before we can continue on that track.
