3D Slicer

with Julien Finet in Lyon, France

March 20, 2020 (1 day long)

3DSlicer is a visualization and analysis software dedicated to image data. Its intuitive GUI allows for using advanced image processing algorithm through open source libraries. The design originally focused on research projects directly or indirectly related to imaging. 3DSlicer is now used world-wide, in a variety of projects running from medical imaging to astronomy.

The objectives of this course will interest users of scientific visualization tools, but also developers willing to customize the interface.


  1. Writing simple python scripts

  2. Loading/Saving data (DICOM, models,...)

  3. Mastering the 3DSlicer's interface

  4. Using segmentation and registration algorithms


  1. Basic knowledge in imaging (volume, processing)
