MPR and 3D Reconstructions feature requests (please!)

First, congratulations on an amazing program. As a consulting Radiologist, I'm very impressed with your software. I'm using RadiAnt primarily for research and review. In several respects, it performs better than the software we use at the enterprise-level. Your interface is simple, clean and fast!

My requests to improve MPR / 3D Reconstructions:
(1) Add ability to automatically subtract bone (or give users a histogram in order for them to eliminate voxels in a certain density range).

(2) Add cut-planes to 3D reconstructions so that a portion of a volume can be eliminated from the reconstruction (for instance the anterior one-half of a volume). This would allow the user to perform a virtual dissection in any plane.

(3) Export finished 3D and MPR models as a parallel planar or radial range.

Again, many thanks for this excellent software and best wishes for continued success.

Thank you for your kind words and the suggestions!
We plan to add those features in future versions.
Could you only elaborate on #3? What kind of export do you mean?

Hi, sorry for the late reply. On many post-processing applications, you are able to export finished models at defined intervals.

As an example, consider a stack of coronal images. Currently, your software allows you to export a single JPEG of the currently-viewed coronal image. However, let's say I wanted to export the entire stack of images from anterior to posterior at 3mm thick slices every 5mm. Therefore, I might expect a total of 20 JPGs to be exported as a "parallel range". These could be individual JPEGs or a new DICOM series.

As another example, if I have constructed a 3D model, I might want to rotate around the model every 10 degrees along a defined plane for a total of 36 images, i.e. a "radial range". I realize you already have an excellent tool to export a fly-through movie using the "3D Snapshots" feature but I know many academic radiologists (including myself) who find it useful to have high-quality individual images exported from an entire range for lectures and teaching.

Again, congratulations on an excellent product.

Thanks for the explanations! Now it's perfectly clear. We'll try to add such exports in one of the future releases.

I would echo #3 - exporting a MPR stack as a separate DICOM series would be fantastic.

Agreed on #3 - exporting MPR stack as a separate DICOM series would be very useful.
