Hi Burak,

Are the 2d MRI slices a series of dicom files? If so you could read them into VTK using vtkDICOMImageReader, see http://www.vtk.org/Wiki/VTK/Examples/Cxx/IO/ReadDICOM, then you could extract the necessary isosurface using vtkContourFilter, e.g. https://github.com/Kitware/VTK/blob/master/Examples/Medical/Cxx/Medical2.cxx

The vtk examples have a series of medical examples that could be useful for what you are trying to achieve

Subject: [vtkusers] 3-D plot using a series of 2-D MRIs

Hello everyone,

I have a series of short-axis MRI images of human heart. I want to stack all the 2-D images in a 3-D matrix and display it in C++ in 3-D. Basically, what I am looking for is a function like isosurface and patch in Matlab.  I will deeply appreciate any help.

Kind Regards
