3D Slicer
MIT AI Lab; Surgical Planning Lab, Brigham and Women's Hospital
The 3D Slicer is freely available, open-source software for visualization, registration, segmentation, and quantification of medical image data. Slicer provides a graphical user interface to a powerful set of tools so they can be used by end-user clinicians and researchers alike. Slicer is based on VTK ( and has a modular architecture for easy addition of new functionality. Slicer uses an XML-based file format called MRML - Medical Reality Markup Language which can be used as an interchange format among medicical imaging applications. Slicer is primarily written in C++ and Tcl.
