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:
- Add module for exporting files in FreeSurfer format (https://github.com/PerkLab/SlicerFreeSurfer/issues/7)
- Streamline user interface (https://github.com/PerkLab/SlicerFreeSurfer/issues/6)
Any comments, feedback, suggestions are welcome.
