Medical Image Analysis Gets More Comprehensive with New Version of Kitware 3D Slicer
FREMONT, CA: The technology company Kitware announces the release of 3D Slicer 4.5 for medical image analysis. Founded in 1998, Kitware specializes in research and development of open source software in the fields of computer vision, medical imaging, visualization, 3D data publishing and technical software development.
3D Slicer is an extensible and open-source software application for visualizing and processing medical images from a multitude of medical devices. Researchers have used it to correlate the shape of structures in magnetic resonance imaging scans of brains with the risk of schizophrenia, as well as to measure cardiac function from computed tomography.
Version 4.5 of the application offers over 60 extensions and 150 feature improvements, with its older version. These extensions enable 3D Slicer to import numerous new kinds of medical images and to make precise measurements of a variety of anatomic structures and pathologies.
“Both a full-featured research platform enabling reproducible science and a highly customizable software application meeting rigorous industrial expectations,” said Jean-Christophe Fillion-Robin, who led the 3D Slicer 4.5 development effort at Kitware.
