3D Slicer GUI

3D Slicer is an open-source software platform for medical image informatics, image processing, and three-dimensional visualization.

TorchIO provides a 3D Slicer extension for quick experimentation and visualization of the package features without any coding.

The TorchIO extension can be easily installed using the Extensions Manager.

The code and installation instructions are available on GitHub.


The Preview version (built nightly) is recommended. You can download and install Slicer from their download website or, if you are on macOS, using Homebrew:

brew tap homebrew/cask-versions && brew cask install slicer-preview

TorchIO Transforms

This module can be used to quickly visualize the effect of each transform parameter. That way, users can have an intuitive feeling of what the output of a transform looks like without any coding at all.
