Medical Segmentation with Slicer


This course introduces participants to the basics of medical images and teaches how to generate three-dimensional models from two-dimensional DICOM (medical) images. – the training modules in this site will be used in the course. Also, it’s recommended that students download the Slicer software from this site prior to the course.

About Course


  • Intro the concept of “virtual prototyping” in medical product development
  • Intro to medical image modalities and anatomical planes
  • Installing and getting started with Slicer
  • Segmenting your first medical image and creating an STL file for export
  • Designing a medical device “virtually” in your segmented anatomy
