3D Slicer module for pedicle screw insertion training.

Tutorial

  • Switch to Pedicle Screw Simulator module (in Training category)
  • Click "Load sample spine CT" button to load a sample image or import from DICOM or other file formats (.nrrd, .mha, ...)

  • Click-and-drag colored spheres in slice views or 3D view to define region that contains vertebrae to be treated
  • Select starting vertebral level and number of treated vertebrae
  • Mark insertion point of each screw on the corresponding vertebra surface
  • Measure pedicle length and width to help screw size selection in a later step

For each insertion site:

  • Select screw length and width and click "Load screw"
  • Adjust vertical and horizontal angle and click "Insert screw"

Click "Grade screws" to get detailed analysis of bone contact:
