Abstract

This paper present the architecture of 3DSlicer, its potentiality and simplicity in the construction of modules. For this, theoretical aspects are described and the development of a module for electrode positioning in stereo-electroencephalography (SEEG) is detailed. This application is currently one of the most used free platforms for the management of medical images, being a very complete tool for the generation of new programmable modules, which satisfy the functionalities required by health professionals. In this sense, it is intended to provide a set of theoretical and practical tools to promote the use of free software tools in medical images.
