Key Investigators

  • Wentworth Institute of Technology: Parth Amin
  • Boston College: Farukh Kohistani
  • BWH/Harvard Medical School: Dr. Sonia Pujol


We are developing the documentation for the Slicer 4.4:

  • SlicerWelcome Tutorial
  • Slicer4Minute Tutorial
  • Slicer4 Quantitative Imaging Tutorial
  • Diffusion Tensor Imaging Tutorial
  • Neruosurgical Planning Tutorial
  • Data Loading and 3D Visualization training module
  • 3D Visualization of DICOM images for Radiology Applications

The goal is to create a step-by-step training module showing how to use the new features of Slicer 4.4.

Approach, Plan

  • Our approach for documentation of Slicer 4.4 is to provide an intuitive and up-to-date training module that will be the starting step for new users joining the Slicer community.
  • The main challenge to this approach is to be relevant for the all gamut of Slicer new users, from first-year students to brain surgeons.
  • Our plan for the project week is to update all the necessary tutorials to the latest version for new users to be able to accurately maneuver through 3D Slicer with the use of the tutorials.
  • We will put together a Wiki page that guides the trainee toward completion of the tutorial learning outcomes.

This work experience is part of our internship under the supervision of Dr. Sonia Pujol.


We have successfully updated majority of the modules with the assistance from Dr. Sonia Pujol to help new users navigate there way around the Slicer software.

To Do:

Finish updating Slicer4 Quantitative Imaging tutorial and 3D Visualization of DICOM images for Radiology Applications tutorial. Update the tutorials from time to time to keep them up-to-date with the newest Slicer version.
