Back to agenda


We discuss how to use 3D Slicer in ultrasound (US)-guided interventions. Our goal is to identify common functions in these applications and create a platform from them in 3D Slicer.


  • In 2012 Slicer programming week
  • 1pm - 3pm, Thursday, June 21, 2012
  • Grier, MIT


  • Tamas Ungi, Queen's University
  • Kirby Vosburgh, BWH


  • Temporal and spatial calibration of tracked US probes using PLUS (Csaba) (slides)
  • Real time US display in Slicer to guide interventions (Tamas)
