Linux Journal: Slicing Scientific Data

Linux Journal: Slicing Scientific Data. “I’ve covered scientific software in previous articles that either analyzes image information or actually generates image data for further analysis. In this article, I introduce a tool that you can use to analyze images generated as part of medical diagnostic work. In several diagnostic medical tests, complex three-dimensional images are generated that need to be visualized and analyzed. This is where 3D Slicer steps into the workflow. 3D Slicer is a very powerful tool for dissecting, analyzing and visualizing this type of complex 3D imaging data. It is fully open source, and it’s available not only on Linux, but also on Windows and Mac OS X.”
