  1. Core 1b – EngineeringEnd-user Platform Steve Pieper Isomics, Inc.

  2. Topics • 2011 Year in Review • 3D Slicer version 4.0 • Highlights • Plans for This Week and Beyond

  3. Core 1b – Engineering5 Aims / 5 Platforms 4 1 Architecture – tools, operating paradigms, reporting mechanisms, integration points End-user platform – interactive methods and information visualization for longitudinal analysis, exploratory data analysis, and translational research Computational platform – stream processing, cloud computing, statistical analysis, informatics, machine learning Data management – non-imaging and derived data, DICOM and cloud services Software engineering and software quality – navigable timeline for revision control, build, test, documentation and release 3 2 5

  4. End-user platform • 3D Slicer: a cross platform system for translating innovative algorithms into clinical research applications Developer Needs Clinical Grade IO and UI Rich Utility Libraries Extensible and Reconfigurable Stable Base Easily Deployable User Needs Easy Install and Upgrade “Standard” Clinical Behavior Consistent Interface Advanced Functionality

  5. Developer Needs • Clinical Grade IO and UI • Slicer developers work closely with DBPs on real data and are exposed to clinical state of the art • Rich Utility Libraries • NA-MIC Kit • Extensible and Reconfigurable • Loadable Extensions • Scriptable GUI • Stable Base • Nightly Extensions Built Against Latest Slicer Release • Slicer Release Relies on Upstream Release (ITK, VTK, etc) • Easily Deployable • Binary Installers for all platforms

  6. User Needs • Easy Install and Upgrade • Binary installers and Extension Wizard • “Standard” Clinical Behavior • Adhere to Conventions where Possible • Varies by Domain (IGT Navigation vs. Neuroscience Research vs. RT Planning) • New Functionality has no “Standard” by Definition • Consistent Interface • Learning one Slicer Module should help you know how to use other ones • Advanced Functionality • Main Motivation: you use slicer because nothing else does what you need – we try to make that as painless as possible

  7. Our Solution: 3D Slicer • Focus for NA-MIC DBPs and Collaborations • Platform and Reusable Parts for Wider Community

  8. Impact – June 2008 – Dec. 2011 Slicer3 Download Statistics

  9. We’ve been busy in 2011… Cue the movie…

  10. Results: For Users • Faster • Startup • Interaction • More Stable • New Qt Interface: Cleaner, Prettier • Better Adherence to Computing Conventions • Mac Bundle • 64 Bit Mac and Windows • DICOM Networking and Database • New Layouts • Improved Modules: EMSegmenter, Annotations, …

  11. Results: For Developers • Rework and Modularization • Better Software Process and Testing • Qt: Rich Widget Library, OS Abstractions • Cleaner Abstractions • New Layouts • Displayable Managers • SuperBuild • Ports to Newer Software • Lion, Ubuntu 11.x… • VTK 5.8, (ITKv4)… • CTK: Uses OPM (Other People’s Money) • International Developer Community • We Contribute Non-Slicer-Specific Developments
