I’m new to slicer and I am a bit confused about all the different possible types of 3D data.
Terms used in the documentation and tutorial videos are volumes, models, and segmentations, as well as labelmaps, volumetric ROIs, subtraction maps, segmentation nodes, markups and masks. Is there documentation on what the differences between especially the first three are?
For example, some modules I have tried to segment the skull in an MRI image give me a volume, others give me a segmentation. Why and what does that mean to me in practice?
I seem unable to find information on this and other problems I have with 3D slicer. Am I using the wrong strategy (e.g. googling ‘3d slicer subtraction maps’)?
Thanks for any kind of help,
