2009 Summer Project Week Liver Ablation Slicer
Home < 2009 Summer Project Week Liver Ablation Slicer
- BWH: Haiying Liu, Noby Hata
- Georgetown: Ziv Yaniv
Implement a complete workflow:
- Load data.
- Manually mark regions (tumor, entry, critical structure).
- Process segmentation and export information to planning module (executable plugin with command line options).
- Load results of the optimization program.
- Configure OpenIGTLink module on Slicer and run OpenIGTLink IGSTK client.
- Integrate code from Georgetown for step 3 into Slicer.
- Decide on appropriate format for describing the output of the optimization (set of trajectories and ablations along each trajectory).
- Implement a stub executable plugin as a stand in for the optimization program.
- Test the integrated workflow.
- Completed GUI design and implementation for "planning" part of the workflow.
- An unique feature in the planning part were tumor segmentation and ablation volume planning, taking ablation magin into account.
- "Navigation" part 80% done.
- In "Navigation", "IGT Guidance" widget was designed and implemented to be shared with other IGT investigators.
