Project Description

Clinical investigators require tools to probe data that can help them to frame hypothesis about how pathophysiology affects changes in imaging. Densitometry is one of the primary assessment tools used to evaluate emphysema from CT scans.


  • Develop a general-purpose probing tool to compute on-the-fly histogram related measurements over a active ROI.

Approach, Plan

  • Create module to compute histogram and histogram measurements on ROIs
  • Explore how to extend the current ROI available shapes


  • Discuss specs for the module to be general enough that can be used to the core slicer distribution
  • Future work: Adding spherical ROIs.
