VolView is an open source radiological viewer developed by Kitware that excels in 3D visualization. Currently, this viewer can be used to visualize files uploaded into the browser.
NCI Imaging Data Commons is a cloud-based repository of cancer imaging data, which among other features provides free access to the DICOM files curated in Google Storage public buckets.
While IDC integrates OHIF and Slim viewers, the instances of the viewers maintained by IDC can only be used to visualize data in IDC. Users that want to visualize analysis results they produce in OHIF or Slim need to deploy their own instances of the viewers. That process is documented, but involves many steps and can be too difficult for many users. Furthermore, OHIF Viewer v2 used in IDC does not have any functionality to support 3D visualization.
In this project we want to investigate the use of existing VolView instance maintained by Kitware at https://volview.kitware.com/ to visualize data in public Google Storage buckets. This will allow:
