3D Slicer Medical Image Data Visualization Workshop


The two hour course is divided into three sections: an introduction on the concepts of 3D visualization, an experimental hands-on training session using an MR DICOM dataset of the brain and a CT DICOM dataset of the abdomen, and a time for assisted viewing of medical imaging data sets provided by participants. This workshop provides an introduction for radiologists to the basics of viewing and interacting with DICOM volumes in 3D using the Slicer software.

Learning Objectives

The learning objectives of the workshop are (a) to enhance interpretation of DICOM images through the use of 3D visualization, (b) to gain experience with interactive assessment of complex anatomical structures (c) to present current directions of open-source computer graphics applications in Radiology. After completion of the workshop, participants will be able to visualize and analyze their own datasets within the 3D Slicer platform.
