Operating system: Mac - High Sierra
Slicer version: 4.8.1
Expected behavior: One perfect, high resolution volume
Actual behavior: Three volumes, each one being high resolution in only one plane (sagittal, coronal, transverse)
I have been using 3D Slicer for many months and I’m slowly learning the ropes. I am using it to produce anatomical boney models, and have probably created between 10-15 models.
After loading CT scans from their DICOM folder I always get several volumes, often with the precursor ‘ax’, ‘sag’, ‘cor’. Individually these volumes have great resolution in the plane they are named after, but poor voxel resolution in the other two planes. Obviously I can load different volumes into each plane to view them all together, but when I start a label map I seem to be committed at that point to one volume, and so the label map resolution is affected in two of the planes.
Is it possible to recreate one high resolution volume from the three ‘ax’, ‘sag’, ‘cor’ volumes or is this something the Radiology department would have to do for me when they create the DICOM folder?
Help would be much appreciated.
