Problem with showing the organs in the Digitally Reconstructed Radiographs(DRR)

(azam) #1

Hi 3D Slicer experts and all
I want to get the distance between the organs (such as the heart) and the radiation fields(like the Figure A) ; and I need the DRR (Digitally Reconstructed Radiographs) to this. I imported the DRR from treatment planning system(TPS) to Slicer, but I can’t see the organs with this image.(Figure B) and have this problem both in 3D Sicer 4.8.1(windows) and 4.10.1 (Linux). can you help me on how to view the radiation field and organs in DRR( in beams eye view)?
Thanks A lot

Do you have to measure the distance in the beam’s eye view or the smallest distance would be useful too?
If you show the DRRs in the 3D view (just hit the eye button in Data module), does it appear in the right place?

I want to measure the different distances in the beam’s eye view, such as the maximum distance that the heart is located in the field ; or, the distance between the lung and the edge of the field in the middle of the field.
also, Display the DRR in three dimensions view as shown below
Thanks a lot
