Gynecological Brachytherapy Needle Segmentation Deployment

Key Investigators

Participating remotely

Project Description

We developed a fully automatic, AI based algorithm to segment brachyterapy neeedles from intraoperative MRI images. Since, we want to make it usable from the 3D Slicer users in a simple and efficient manner, we would like to deploy our algorithm by using DeepInfer plugin.


  1. Deploy the developed algorithm

Approach and Plan

  1. Learn about DeepInfer plugin and Docker system
  2. Deploy the entire workflow

Progress and Next Steps

  1. A docker container containing the code and the models has been created for a GPU based prediction.
  2. The docker has been exposed via DeepInfer Slicer extension
  3. We are evaluating the possibility to expose the service also via Tomaat extension

  4. Next step is to upload the container into the cloud
