3D Slicer

3D Slicer

3D Slicer (Slicer) is a multi-platform, open source, integrated software for visualization and image computing. It is intended for computer scientists and clinical researchers.

The software is extremely well featured. It has functionality for loading, viewing, analyzing, processing and interacting with biomedical data, for segmentation, registration and three-dimensional visualization of multi-modal image data, as well as advanced image analysis algorithms for diffusion tensor imaging, functional magnetic resonance imaging and image-guided therapy. Standard image file formats are supported, and the application integrates interface capabilities to biomedical research software and image informatics frameworks.

Slicer can be extended at run-time with plug-in modules, allowing developers and researchers to customise and specialize Slicer for a specific purpose.

Slicer is used in a variety of medical applications including neurosurgery, prostate cancer, cardiovascular disease, autism, multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, schizophrenia, orthopedic biomechanics, and COPD.

Slicer is based on VTK, a graphical library that provides a high-level interface to OpenGL and a pipeline mechanism to connect graphical filters.
