Export 3D reconstruction

Hi there!

The 3D reconstruction tool in RadiAnt is astonishing, as is the ability to "segment" on a Surface Pro. Is there any capacity to export this segmented "data".

I'm not familiar with the mechanics of producing the reconstructions, so I don't know whether there's an inherent limitation that prevents this. But if it were possible to extract, for example, the bone reconstructions as a 3D, binary array of pixels, that would be exceptionally useful.

Thanks a lot for your help.

No, currently you cannot export 3D volumes in any way.

Thanks for the reply!

Is that a technical limitation, in the way the structures are reconstructed? In other words, nothing exists that could be exported? Or is it just a software limitation, where an export function hasn't been implemented?

We haven't implemented 3D volume export so far. We may add such functionality in the future.

Hi Maciej

export of the 3D volume would be a great feature ! Please add this option :)

Well, it certainly won't be added in 2017, I'm afraid... A few features with greater priority awaits.

I just tried RadiAnt and am very impressed. I do realize that it's advertised as a DICOM "viewer", but an export-3D-model feature would be a valuable addition. Even if it could only export in one format (OBJ or DXF, or maybe 3DMF?) that would allow people to view the 3D volume in apps with more powerful renderers, and on other computer platforms. Converting to other 3D formats could also be done that way, if necessary. The RadiAnt renderer (and editor!) is quite good, but only has one lighting option, etc. I do like how it displays faster if you shrink the size. Maybe in 2018?

Volume rendering is only a method of visualization of volume data. To be able to export 3D models, the implementation of surface rendering is required to create such model in the first place. Currently there is no such feature in RadiAnt DICOM Viewer (with the time frame not yet specified).

just wondering if the 3d option was added to export stl files?
Thank you!

No, currently there is no 3D export option available in RadiAnt.

An export to export 3D files to stl format would be appreciated.

I was playing with the 3D snapshot feature...

does it only allows to export snapshots as movies?

what about saving snapshots as single images to compose a new DICOM series?
is it already possible (and I did not figure out how) or it's a feature to add to the ToDo list?

That's correct. Currently only movies can be exported from 3D snapshots.

Radiant is one of the better DICOM viewer and reconstruction tool I have ever use. One of the tools I miss and the reason I don´t purchase the lincence yet is the impossiblility to export 3D and MIP recons as DICOM series in the study.
Any news about fixing this drawback.

Yes, we have this feature in our to-do list. There is no time frame for this.
