3D Slicer Medical Image Data Visualization Hands-On Workshop


The purpose of this tutorial is to provide the members of the research community with a practical experience of the capabilities of the Open Source 3D Slicer software platform. The curriculum is hands-on which means that participants will have access to computers. The course is divided into two sections:

  • an introduction on the concepts of Slicer and 3D visualization.
  • a demonstration on how to use Slicer to generate quantitative image biomarkers from FDG-PET/CT (pre/post-therapy whole-body imaging with SUV quantification)

Target Audience

Radiology Residents and Fellows and Translational Clinical Scientists who are interested in medical image computing

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 such as generation of quantitative imaging biomarkers for FDG-PET/CT. After completion of the workshop, participants will be able to visualize and analyze their own datasets within the 3D Slicer platform.
