Event Details

Stephen Aylward and Jean-Christophe Fillion-Robin will present ’Accelerating Medical Visualization Research via Open-Source Platforms and Practices.’


This talk will introduce the tools that enable the creation of effective open-source platforms, discuss the costs and benefits of creating and using open-source platforms, and identify the trends of open-source visualization in medicine. Specific examples will be given throughout the talk, drawn from ongoing research and development projects at Kitware, including our recent enhancements to 3D Slicer and our research into USB-based ultrasound probes and automated ultrasound analysis software for in-field brain and abdominal trauma assessment. The talk will conclude with a live demonstration that highlights innovations in 3D Slicer for interactive disease visualization and treatment planning.
