Key Investigators

  • Brigham and Women's Hospital: Junichi Tokuda
  • Acoustic MedSystems: Clif Burdette, Jack Blevins
  • Queen's University: Tamas Ungi, Andras Lasso

Objective

We will implement basic functionality of the new OpenIGTLink IF module for Slicer 4.

Approach, Plan

We will work on the following features:

  • I/O configuration interface
    • We will create a user interface that allows the user to configure incoming and outgoing data in a tree view interface.
  • Visualization interface
    • We will create a user interface to configure slice drivers.

Progress

  • The prototype module is available in NAMICSandBox.
  • Implemented Data I/O Configuration Module
    • Shows a list of incoming and outgoing data stream for each IGTL connector node in a tree interface
    • Allows adding nodes to be imported or exported.
  • Exporting data
    • The module now recognizes updates in nodes, which are specified as outgoing data in I/O configuration and export data through OpenIGTLink connection.
  • Python interface
  • Start writing a documentation in slicer.org
