The SlicerSALT team is proud to announce that version 3.0 is now available for download. This release introduces a new registration based shape representation calculation and bug fixes for better stability in almost all of our modules. Sample data has been added to facilitate the use of many of these modules. 

SlicerSALT is made possible through contributions from a multidisciplinary team coming from Kitware, NYU Tandon School of Engineering and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The development of SlicerSALT is supported by the NIH National Institute of Biomedical Imaging Bioengineering R01EB021391 (Shape Analysis Toolbox for Medical Image Computing Projects).

Registration based correspondence module: a) Interface. The user only needs to provide a template object, a folder containing meshes of the target objects, and a folder to store the resulting meshes in. b) The resulting correspondent meshes for a group of mice femurs obtained from microCT, colored by point order. The consistency of the colors across cases shows that the meshes are in good correspondence. Thanks to NIAMS grant 1R44AR074375 (PI. McCormick) for providing access to the data.

Please visit the SlicerSALT forum for a complete list of improvements and fixes.
