Slicetracker is a Slicer extension which focuses on tracking the prostate during MR-guided prostate biopsies. It combines registration of the prostate in pre-procedural and intra-procedural images which improves the chance to find the exact same target position in intra-procedural images.
Furthermore a so called z-Frame registration is included for correlating the patient and 3D Slicers coordinate system. For guidance of the needle a template grid with 15x14 holes is placed in front of the z-Frame. The optimal hole is computed for inserting the needle and obtaining the tissue sample.
