Project Description


  • Develop an organ ROI detection tool for 2D slides to enable quick initialization and rapid

Approach, Plan

  • Leverage OpenCV technology for object detection in images.
  • Integration of OpenCV tools as a Slicer module to enable training and deployment of object detectors
  • Discuss other alternatives:
    • Jim recommends looking at the 2013 SPIE paper that used the histogram of oriented gradients.


  • Python prototype working for different chest structures like pulmonary artery, right ventricle, left ventricle.
