Software library for tracked ultrasound image acquisition, calibration, and processing.
Create slice models (CreateSliceModels)

The CreateSliceModels.exe utility (part of PlusLib) can be used to verify the slice positions. From a metafile containing tracked image frames it creates a surface model file of all the tracked frame positions. The surface model file can be visualized in Slicer or ParaView.



CreateSliceModels.exe --source-seq-file=NwirePhantomFreehand.mha --output-model-file=GeneratedSliceModels.vtk --config-file=PlusDeviceSet_NwirePhantomFreehand_vtkPlusVolumeReconstructorTest2.xml --image-to-reference-transform=ProbeToReference

Command-line parameters reference

  --config-file=opt  Config file used for volume
                                      reconstruction. It contains the probe
                                      calibration matrix, the ImageToTool
                                      transform (.xml) 

  --help  Print this help.

  --image-to-reference-transform=opt  Image to reference transform name used
                                      for creating slice models

  --output-model-file=opt  A 3D model file that contains rectangles
                                      corresponding to each US image slice

  --source-seq-file=opt  Tracked ultrasound recorded by Plus
                                      (e.g., by the TrackedUltrasoundCapturing
                                      application) in a sequence file

  --verbose=opt  Verbose level (1=error only, 2=warning,
                                      3=info, 4=debug, 5=trace)
