New Mexico Decedent Image Database: Taking 3D Measurements with Images

Event Dates
Eastern
All times are Eastern Time unless noted otherwise.
Event Duration
1 hour
Location
Online

This webinar will introduce the audience to viewing and collecting data from 3D medical imaging modalities (CT/MRI) using the open source 3D Slicer software platform. The presenters will visualize sample datasets through two methods: as a 3D volume rendering for previewing a dataset or collecting surface data; and as a 3D model which can be used in Slicer or exported for further analysis and 3D printing. From these visualizations, they will collect three different types of quantitative data: (1) linear and angular measurements; (2) 3D landmark data (called fiducial markup data) which can be used in geometric morphometric analyses of size and shape; and (3) volumetric data through both manual and semi-automated segmentation processes. The presenters will demonstrate how methods can be used for both mineralized/skeletal and soft tissues in CT and MRI datasets.

The latest stable release of the Slicer platform can be downloaded at www.slicer.org. Individuals interested in further training in 3D Slicer should consult the Slicer Wiki and the Slicer Discourse Forum (discourse.slicer.org).
