It’s been some months since we blogged about MicroView , and it’s high time that we updated our community on its development status – never fear, development continues on unabated. We’ve been mostly focusing on improving MicroView’s core stability (hence the “beta” label on recent releases), but we’ve had some time to work on new tools as well. We’ve added a number of image filters to MicroView, including median and anisotropic smoothing; the GPU-accelerated volume renderer gained some usability improvements and volume cropping; a new DICOM-push tool has been added; the basic ROI selection tool now can rotate ROI primitives; and finally, we’ve integrated an experimental shell into MicroView. The shell allows you to work with images using either VTK’s python wrappers or numpy ’s array interface. We have a few ideas, internally, on how a shell like this can be used, but we can’t wait to find out what MicroView power-users can do with this. If you find a use for it, don’t forget to drop us an email to let us know.
