Utilizing Slicer to Calculate 3D Length/ Distance as well as Surface Area on CT Images

Hello All,

I’m new to the Slicer community and having a little difficulty getting started on a project.

I am looking to calculate 3D length measurements as well as surface area measurements for a set of cranial CT scans (DICOM data). I was hoping to get the Slicer Community’s opinion on the best way to go about solving a problem like this.

I’ve done my best to look through the forums here online, but I believe I might be so new to the program that I’m a bit overwhelmed by all of the different tools/extensions.

I’m sure many of the power users here in the community could make quick work of a task like this, so I am very grateful for any assistance you may be able to offer.

Thanks in advance!

It sounds like you can get what you need from either markups or segment statistics. If there’s anything not covered let us know.
