SlicerCustomAppTemplate by Kitware

This project is a template to be used as a starting point for creating a custom 3D Slicer application.

3D Slicer is an open-source and extensible application for visualization and medical image analysis. 3D Slicer works with optical imaging, MRI, CT, and ultrasound data.

At Kitware, we have applied 3D Slicer to research and commercial applications ranging from pre-clinical animal studies, to surgical planning and guidance, to ultrasound image analysis, to medical robot control, to population studies.

Getting Started

The following will get a custom 3D Slicer application started in a new repository:

pip install cookiecutter jinja2-github
cookiecutter gh:KitwareMedical/SlicerCustomAppTemplate
# Fill in the information requested at the prompts
