Hi Slicer community,
I’ve been sent a cardiac dataset which appears to be a number of volumes extracted directly from an ultrasound machine (I am attaching a video of all the volumes available).
I have never worked with such a dataset before & am interested in anyone has any tips on topics / areas I should familiarise myself with to understand more.
Ultimately I’d like to extract the volumes into a format that we could query in 3D in Unity for instance, a bit like we have done for this CT data → Canine echocardiography simulator mobile phone - 3D Veterinary Learning, IVALA.
It would be cool for a learner to be able to ‘slice’ through the ultrasound 3D volume in realtime and have the 2D view reflect what they are seeing.
A good start would rpobably be if there were a way to convert a volume into a set of images?
At the moment these volumes are single files with no recognisable extension.
Any tips welcomed!
