Operating system: Windows 7
Slicer version: 4.8.1
Expected behavior: 3D Slicer should show the exact number of slices as appear in a DICOM viewer
Actual behavior: 3D Slicer shows extra (and I cannot find a “match” for some of the correct slices shown in DICOM)
I am working with MRI data. When I load it into 3D Slicer, it often adds extra slices than what are actually present (i.e. one scan has 8 slices, which I verified with the PHILIPS DICOM viewer, but in 3D slicer, the data shows up as having 13 slices). Now, sliding the slider at the top of each frame definitely interpolates between slices, but I am wondering if interpolation also occurs when I am using the arrow keys, which usually just navigates slice by slice. The reason I am wondering this is that I tried to match the slices I was seeing in the DICOM viewer with what I was seeing in 3D slicer, to filter out the extra, non-matching slices in Slicer, but some of the slices from the DICOM viewer are not precisely matched anywhere in what 3D slicer showed me. This error is present whether I load in the data in DICOM or NIFTY (.nii) form.
Any insights are much appreciated! Thank you.
