Operating system: Windows10
Slicer version: 4.11.20210226
Plus version: 18.104.22.16810217
Expected behavior: visualizing the reconstructed volume as the reconstruction goes by
Actual behavior: the reconstructed volume is visible once the acquisition completed
I’ve been testing to reconstruct in real-time a pelvis sawbone using SlicerIGT (using a Telemed ultrasound probe and a NDI polaris tracker) and I had trouble visualizing the live reconstruction.
I have followed both tutorials from power point presentation U34 and youtube video but I did not manage to configure Slicer such as it shows the reconstructed volume during the ultrasound acquisition.
I have been able with both SlicerIGT modules Volume Reconstruction and Plus Remote, to launch the Live Reconstruction, but I could visualize the reconstructed volume in the 3D window only when I finished the acquisition.
Is there a specific setting in the Volume Rendering module to show the reconstructed volume in real-time during the acquisition ?
Also I noticed a weird behaviour of the US image parameters (depth, gain, frequency,…):
when I had the US probe in the water tank containing the sawbone before setting the Volume Reslice Driver to view the US image, the US image was nice,
but when I set the Volume Reslice Driver before putting the US probe in of the water tank, the US image was getting blurred and very noisy, it seemed like the US parameters set in the configuration file were not applied at all
Is there a default behaviour for the US image visualization that could change the input US parameters when visualizing the US image for the first time ?
Thanks in advance for any help !
