The theme for this year’s EPSM Conference is “Future of Medical Physics – ART and Science”. Planning is well underway for a comprehensive program offering exciting, innovative and creative presentations that embrace the theme of ‘ART’ or ‘art’ in science and engineering. Please download the pdf of the program for an overview. This will be updated as speakers are confirmed.
The following 2-hour workshop will be held as part of the EPSM 2017 program. If you are interested in attending please advise when you complete your conference registration online. Numbers are limited to 15 participants.
3D slicer (https://www.slicer.org/) is a free software used to generate 3D models from CT data which can be printed on a 3D printer. Models can be very useful in surgery planning, particularly maxillofacial work. In this workshop participants will go through all the steps from loading a CT data set, cropping a volume of interest, thresholding the volume to extract the bone surface, separating anatomy, creating a 3D model and saving the data ready to print. Participants must supply their own laptop, with 8GB or more memory and have 3D slicer installed (http://download.slicer.org/). We will be using two CT data sets which must also be downloaded from here and here. If you would like to get a head start watch the online tutorials listed in the Slicer help section, such as this one.
