The Segmented Structures Panel for the 3D reconstruction window is shown in Fig. 6.3. In the MPR window the panel looks alike.



The panel contains the Control buttons:

PIC The Add a new segmented structure button creates a new structure for the visible parts of a model.
PIC The Copy the segmented structure button creates a structure from an existing structure or the base volume.
PIC The Restore segmented structure makes the main volume the same as the selected segmented structure (only for the Volume Reconstruction window).
PIC The Remove segmented structures button removes a selected structure.
PIC The Export segmented structure button exports a selected structure to a series of DICOM images.
PIC The Create surface for current segment button creates a surface for a selected structure or for the base volume.
PIC The Remove surface for current segment button removes a surface for a selected structure or for the base volume.
PIC The Export mesh button exports the surface of a selected structure to a ply, obj or stl file formats.
PIC The Import surface button imports a segmented structure from ply, obj or stl file formats.
PIC The Click and Drag segmentation It creates a structure at the point where the cursor is located and produces its growth within the mask when the cursor is removed from the starting point. The algorithm for constructing a structure takes into account the shape of the mask and performs less intensive growth in those directions in which the mask could be built wrongly.

The volume and the density statistics are calculated for each structure (Fig. 6.4).
