Background

Airway Inspector (www.airwayinspector.org) is a tool for CT-based image quantitative analysis of the lung to allow the exploration of airway morphology and desitometric characteristics [1]. In order to become a part of 3D Slicer 4, the Airway inspector needs to have a consistent MRML representation of data and visualization


Objective

To develop a MRML Infrastructure for the airway inspector

Approach, Plan

We will base the developement in the current infrastructure for tractography in 3D slicer. This is well modularized and encompasses data representation, I/O and GUI

Progress

A Loadable module with the MRML nodes for storage, data representation and visualization has been created. The next steps are to create the Logic and GUI components.

Delivery Mechanism

This work will be delivered to the NA-MIC Kit as a

  1. Slicer Module
    1. Extension — loadable modules
