New Extension: SlicerFreeSurfer

We have added a new extension called SlicerFreeSurfer to the latest Slicer preview releases (4.11).
This exension takes over handling FreeSurfer models/scalar overlay import from the 3D Slicer core, and adds support for importing FreeSurfer segmentations

FreeSurfer files can be dragged + dropped into Slicer, or users can use the FreeSurfer Importer module can to navigate and import many files from a FreeSurfer subject directory. Models imported from FreeSurfer can now also be transformed into the correct coordinate system by aligning them to a corresponding reference image.

Future plans include:

Any comments, feedback, suggestions are welcome.

Development was funded in part by NIH grant R01MH112748 and CANARIE’s Research Software Program.
