SlicerSALT

Key Investigators

Project Description

Slicer Shape AnaLysis Toolbox (SlicerSALT) is the dissemination vehicle of powerful shape analysis methodology based on 3D Slicer open-source software. SlicerSALT will enhance the intuitiveness and ease of use as well as allow researchers to find shape changes with higher statistical power. Altogether this constitutes a crucial resource for the imaging field that will enable many and important new findings in biomedical imaging studies.

SlicerSALT will be used to:

Objective

  1. Work on the new SlicerSALT release
  2. Work on the methodology for the estimation of shape correspondence for population of objects with complex topology

Approach and Plan

  1. SlicerSALT’s Project:
    • Update of the Slicer version used by SlicerSALT to the new release
    • Incorporation of Shape Regression Extension in the new SlicerSALT release
    • Test of the new extensions
  2. Project for the estimation of shape correspondence for population of objects with complex topology:
    • Comparison of the three methods already existing
    • Investigation in order to universalize the Deformetrica method (issue with the use of Cuda/GPU)
    • Investigation in order to find a more efficient method (new tools, new algorithms, etc..)

Progress and Next Steps
