  • Exchange information about research communities and common scientific/clinical interests
  • Review ongoing research work related to 3D Slicer software
  • Provide guided hands-on exposure to 3D Slicer functionality by working through example analysis tutorials


  • Attendees may wish to review the web sites related to 3D Slicer research:
    • the main project web site
    • a community of researchers using 3D Slicer and related software
    • a large project related to imaging and interventional/surgical therapy
    • a project focused on radiation therapy
  • To get an idea of the types of research, have a look at 3D Slicer related publications
  • It would be ideal if workshop participants could come with specific ideas or questions related to how the software might relate to their own research or clinical interests.
