  3. Get the segmentations back

Progress and Next Steps

  1. Update SlicerChronicle to python3 and Slicer 4.11
  2. Generalize plan to work with locally running Slicer with Chronicle enabled (same code will work with cloud Slicer with or without docker container)
  3. Update json job request file format
  4. Test with local dicomweb-server
  5. Add a button to ePad to trigger Slicer using Slicer Chronicle
