I want to help a doctor friend to achieve what the title says. I have no idea from medical argot but I know about software development.
Basically what I need is to know the easiest way to automate a few steps:
- Import and Load DICOM from a specified folder.
- Use Editor module with ThresholdEffect (submodule?) to adjust the lower threshold with a specified number.
- Again, use Editor module now with MakeModelEffect to generate 3d model
- Export model generated in .stl
I see I can open Slicer from command line but don’t know if is possible to execute all I described before from command line.
Other way I see is developing a new custom module with Python that ‘calls’ the others modules (load DICOM, ThresholdEffect, MakeModelEffect, Export). I found an API (http://apidocs.slicer.org/master/) but I could not find any like ThresholdEffect method or something.
So… command line? new python module? other way?
Hope you can point me the right direction.
