Technical Topics

  • ImageIO support for GUI
    • ImageIO classes should report
      • The extensions that they support
      • A description for each extension
      • A generic name for the file format ?
      • Currently the ImageIO classes have methods
        • ArrayOfExtensionsType GetSupportedWriteExtensions() const
        • ArrayOfExtensionsType GetSupportedReadExtensions() const
        • void AddSupportedWriteExtension( const char * extension )
        • void AddSupportedReadExtension( const char * extension )
    • Questions
      • How to deal with Analyze and Nifti
      • How to deal with DICOM (no specific extension)
    • Proposals
      • Proposal 1
        • Change the GetSupportedWriteExtensions() and GetSupportedReadExtensions() to return an array of pairs (extension, description)
        • Add a method to return a generic description of the ImageIO (e.g. NIFTI, Analyze, MetaImage)
      • Proposal 2
        • Change the GetSupportedWriteExtensions() and GetSupportedReadExtensions() to return an array of triplets (extension, description,generic description)
  • Oriented Images
  • Lesion Sizing Toolkit

Appendix

Use Case for Image IO

File->Save As... would bring up a file browse dialog that would have have a drop down menu with options something like:

 DICOM - .dcm
 NIfTI - .hdr
 NIfTI (One File) - .nii
 NIfTI (One File, compressed) - .nii.gz
 Analyze 7.5 - .hdr
 NRRD  (One File) - .nrrd
 NRRD - .nhdr


For the File->Open... dialog, we'd want the menu to look like:

 Common Image Formats (.dcm, .mha, .nii, .nrrd <etc>)
 DICOM (.*)
 NRRD (.nrrd, .nhdr)
 NIfTI (.hdr, .nii, .nii.gz)
