Hi, I’m Doug Porter from the Mayo Clinic. We have an application that we developed in-house called QREADS which runs in MS Windows and is used by our clinicians. We are looking to expand it’s capabilities from being a simple 2D medical image viewer, to including some 3D functionality. What would be perfect and productive is a simple open source executable program that we could launch from QREADS to which we could pass the path of CT, MR or NM DICOM files, and allow our physicians to perform orthogonal (sagittal, coronal and axial) and oblique MPR triangulation. ALSO, we need a simple UI for volume slice Fusion; co-registration of CT PET MR and SPECT. I understand that this is a Slicer group. But would anyone know how we could acquire such an app? I’ve been modifying a download of FourPanesViewer to meet out needs, but it’s going to require a lot more work. I suspect there is something in Slicer that can be separated out that could receive a DICOM path and perform MPR triangulations. I’ve been in conversation with David Gobbi and he has been really helpful with using his decompression and using CMake, but CMake is very complicated to say the least. I need help from the VTK/ITK experts like yourselves.
If you have MPR Slicer code that I can isolate as a separate app and pass a DICOM path to and branch to from QREADS, that would save us so many headaches…
