I have hit a brick wall with segmenting and volume rendering CT DICOM data. Would love some help.
My input is a raw CT Abdo dicom I have converted into a 3D matrix (512x512x118 double). The output I would like to achieve is a 3D rendered volume of the skeletal components of the scan, which I can then manipulate the viewing position / orientation axes (IE. save JPEGs of the skeleton from multiple viewing angles). My aim is to then feed the JPEGs into a neural net.
I can produce an adequate isosurface volume rendered image of the skeleton using the Volume Viewer App, see below. Is there a way to work with the Volume app through command line inputs only? (I have a lot of CTs to process). For each CT volume rendered image, I want to save a JPEG from a pre-set viewing angle (ie. 45*, 90* so on around the Z-axis), which would not be possible using the app on its own. Alternatively, is there a way to save the volume-rendered image to workspace, so I can then manipulate the volume viewing axis?
Thanks for input!
