Improvements in the new version of Simpleware, announced in March, include:
- There’s automatic import and alignment of datasets. For example, there’s co-registration of MRI and CT scans of the same patient anatomy, or of multiple MRI scans in different orientations. The tool can be used in multiple modes, with automatic greyscale based snapping to improve the registration.
- Users can reslice image data, and their segmented masks, to enable easier identification of particular regions of interest.
- New lasso and polygonal frustum creation options are meant to make selecting region of interests easier, and manual processing of data faster.
- The new wall thickness analysis tools analyzes the thickness of any segmented mask or surface object.
- There are a number of new tools for automatic and guided shape fitting to segmented masks and surface objects.
- The snap tool offers an automatic alternative for registration of alike surfaces.
- Simpleware software now supports import of orphan volume mesh data from a range of common mesh formats. These volume meshes can originate from third-party meshing software or from Simpleware itself.
