Slicer currently has a DICOM-RT import plugin, but not a DICOM-RT export plugin. This project will attempt to remedy this deficiency by creating a plugin for DICOM-RT export.

Approach, Plan

The approach will be to create a command line plugin which wraps the plastimatch tool. Images will be exported as CT, dose, or structure sets. For structure sets, we will assume a bit-sliced image format rather than labelmap format.


  • plastimatch-slicer-dicomrt-export (and import) successfully built as slicer extensions
  • windows version works for import and export
  • linux version works for import, fails on export (being investigated)
  • DICOMRT datastructures will be populated as part of slicer4 dicom interface project.

Delivery Mechanism

This work will be delivered to the NA-MIC Kit as a command line module.
