Extensive Software application and development platform for medical image visualization, analysis, quantification, segmentation, and registration. Fully customizable and extensible in C++ and Python.
stable release, Slicer license (BSD type)
Software application and development platform for medical image visualization, analysis, quantification, segmentation, and registration. Supports all imaging modalities, wide range of data types (surface and volumetric meshes, textured surface scans, spectrum data, points, lines, curves, tables, etc.), time sequences of any data sets, real-time hardware device interfaces, and specialized modules for a wide range of application areas (diffusion imaging, image-guided therapy, radiation therapy, shape analysis, etc.). Fully customizable and extensible in C++ and Python. Custom modules can be shared with the community using 3D Slicer app store. Built over two decades through support from the National Institutes of Health and a worldwide developer community, Slicer brings free, powerful cross-platform processing tools to physicians, researchers, and the general public.
