You can find the correct pre-built executable for your system below:

Note: not all steps of the tutorials can be completed on 32bit operating systems due to memory limitations.

Workshop Instructions

  • Step 1: (On the USB) Delete the directory Home->Data
  • Step 2: Create a new directory called 'workshopData' in your home directory
  • Step 3: Download the 4 archive datasets on the workshop workstation (Right-click->Save Link As->Choose 'workshopData' directory->Okay)
  • Step 5: Unzip all archive datasets into 'workshopData'
  • Step 6: (Personal laptop) If not done already, download the correct Slicer4 binary file (see Laptop Instructions above)

For USB participants: All tutorials except the SimpleITK tutorial, will be using the 'Slicer' icon. The SimpleITK tutorial will be using the 'Slicer-ITKv4' icon.
