Step 2: DICOM Data Model Export

Once InVesalius has calculated the model, you can adjust the settings to select only the brain. We did this by filtering out everything but fat tissue then adjusting the levels to select as much of the brain as possible.

Don't worry if other parts are selected - these can be removed later.

Once you are happy with your selection, save out as an STL file.
<p>I am wondering if you can use this tech. to create a model using a 3d printer from an ultrasound machine ?</p>
<p>Why hasn`t mentioned thought for food?</p>
<p>Happy Halloween! Has anyone actually gotten this to work? I tried loading an MRI into the InVesalius software, but I can't understand how to make layers to save as .stl files. I limited to fat tissue but the 3D model viewer just came out empty. I'm sure if I can get it to work, it would be really cool...If we could just get what we have into an .stl file I can manipulate it in another program, but it's like it's saving blank .stl files because there is something wrong with the layers. Post any solutions here!</p>

<p>Hello, </p><p>I am desperately trying to extract the 3D surface of a <br> juvenile brain MRI in Invesalius. I have tried many other DICOM <br>converting softwares, but I like Invesalius the best and is the only one <br> uploading my DICOM properly. What steps exactly did you use to <br>isolate/segment the brain surface? I've looked everywhere and can't find <br> a guide for this purpose sepcifically. <br></p><p>Thank you very much for the feedback. Congrats again on a superb idea. </p><p>Best, Caitlin</p>
<p>Mmm brains! Here's my zombie seals of approval</p>
<p>Hi! There is a simpler way to get the Brain STL file (ie no 3D editing or thresholding necessary). Just download and install FreeSurfer, it's an open source software suite for processing and analyzing (human) brain MRI images. With only one command it's possible to extract the cortical surface, which in turn can be easily converted to an STL file. I was able to import this file directly in the slicer software to generate the Gcode print file. Worked like a charm! Next step will be making chololate versions!</p>
<p>Oh! my God! this is wonderful</p>
<p>Hey! I've been trying to open DICOM files in invesalius... But it just keeps &quot;loading DICOM files&quot;... I have no idea what to do :( I need to convert the data to stl, but i cant do that without the program not loading the data.</p>
<p>This is very awesome. I am trying to do this with my cancer that I had. I have the DICOM files and I am able to see my scan in 3d but I cant get the cancer to show up at all.</p>
<p>You should anonymize the DICOM files of the brain MRI. The full name, date of birth, scan location, etc. is all there. DICOM files are like JPEGs on steroids for medical imaging. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DICOM</p>
OK, the link to the DICOM only shows on the PDF.
Thats striking... <br>
