Changes from Stradwin 5.2 to 5.3
Changes to cortical bone mapping
The GUI for this feature has been re-designed to allow overall selection of multiple options to match the various published techniques.
There is a new endo-cortical model which can be used to measure the width of the endo-cortical transition region.
There is a new HRTC (High Resolution Tissue Classifier) model which is more appropriate for measuring from peripheral CT data.
The automatic thresholding version has been improved.
Accurate cortical surfaces can now be created from surface-based measurements, with options to include outer and/or inner surfaces.
Cortical surface creation can now be performed within a stradwin script.
Changes relating to objects and surfaces
It is now possible to define patches on surfaces by drawing on an existing closed surface.
Surfaces based on regular DICOM or image data can now be exported to a Nifti mask, which defines whether each voxel is inside each surface.
Surfaces can now be re-named within a stradwin script.
The scripts can now load surfaces in PLY format as well as VRML.
Changes to measurements
There is a new feature to mark points and curves directly onto a previously defined surface.
These points and curves can be exported with the surface for use in registration.
The landmarks GUI has been re-designed.
The display font can now be altered to accommodate higher resolution displays.
It is now possible to pan (move) the data in various windows using the right mouse button.
DICOM data can now be loaded in lossless jpeg format, which is used for some ultrasound data sets.
Image data can now also be loaded in Analyze .hdr format, and 16-bit .tiff format.
