NorMIT-Plan is part of the Norwegian centre for Minimally
Invasive Guided Threrapy (NorMIT). The centre offers resources
for medical technology research in minimally invasive
therapies. NorMIT-Plan is a software package developed as a set of 3D Slicer
modules which will provide tools for segmentation, 3D modeling and
surgical plannig for liver resection procedures.
NorMIT-Plan Planning Module
In this project we will update the software to the latest 3D Slicer
version, fix known bugs and create a 3D Slicer extension.
- Objective A. Design a new module layout.
- Objective B. Refactor old module elements using modern 3D Slicer infrastructure (Terminologies, Markups,…).
- Objective C. Make a plan to integrate generic tools into 3D Slicer infrastructure.
Approach and Plan
- Creation of a 3D Bezier Markup.
- Meetings to decide on an integration strategy.
Progress and Next Steps
- A prototype of a new Markup (3D Bezier surface) has been developed.
- Plan to extend 3D Slicer infrastructure to allow third-party modules to register markups.
- Plan to develop a module and extend 3D Slicer with the generic tools (3D deformable surface markup).
