Morning: 3D Slicer/SlicerMorph: A Complete Solution for All Things Digital Morphology

Morning Session
3D Slicer is a comprehensive, open-source biomedical visualization software. The SlicerMorph extension makes it easier to use the 3D Slicer platform for high-resolution microCT scans. This workshop will demonstrate how to: import image stacks in different resolutions; crop/subdivide datasets; create 3D visualizations and animations with volume rendering; do segmentation; export 3D surface models; and annotate data with markups (landmarks, lines, angles, curves, planes and ROIs).

A Zoom link for the session will be provided to attendees following symposium registration. Workshop will take place 10:30-12:30 CST.
5 places available

Afternoon: SlicerMorph: Tools for Conducting 3D Geometric Morphometrics and Quantitative Morphology in Slicer

Afternoon Session
This workshop will continue from where the morning 3D Slicer/SlicerMorph workshop left off. It will focus on morphometric data collection and analysis using the modules offered by SlicerMorph, and exporting results to R for further comprehensive statistical shape analysis.

A Zoom link for the session will be provided to attendees following symposium registration. Workshop will take place 1:30-3:30 CST.

Morning: Blob3D and Quant3D: Measurement of Discrete Objects and Diffuse Fabrics in XCT Data

Morning Session
UTCT’s freeware Blob3D and Quant3D were developed to measure discrete objects and diffuse fabrics within XCT data, respectively. In this workshop UTCT researchers (Romy Hanna and Dave Edey) will present a brief overview of each program and work through short tutorials on how to load data and extract measurements using sample XCT datasets of a basaltic pumice and an ilmenite-bearing schist.

A Zoom link for the session will be provided to attendees following symposium registration. Workshop will take place 10:00-12:30 CST.

Morning: Dragonfly: Image Processing Traceability and Automation

Morning Session
How to automatically document all of your image processing operations and store them as a recipe to reproduce and batch process future samples. Hands-on lesson.

ORS will send credentials for users to access Amazon Web instances where they can do hands-on exercises. Everyone will have the same Dragonfly version installed and the same tutorial data examples. Zoom meeting to hear the workshop instructor. Workshop will take place 10:00-12:30 CST.

Afternoon: Dragonfly: Segmentation Wizard

Afternoon Session
AI (conventional and deep learning) tool for automatic segmentation. Users will see how they can iteratively train AI models for fully automatic segmentation without needing hours to paint ground-truth segmentations. Hands-on lesson.

ORS will send credentials for users to access Amazon Web instances where they can do hands-on exercises. Everyone will have the same Dragonfly version installed and the same tutorial data examples. Zoom meeting to hear the workshop instructor. Workshop will take place 1:30-4:00 CST.
