Installing the plastimatch windows binary

Download a plastimatch window binary file

Run the downloaded “plastimatch-O.O.O-winOO.msi” file

  • During the installation, specify the installation directory. If you do not have permission to install into the default location, a user-created folder is recommended.

Run a sample deformable image registration using a command line

  • Run the plastimatch command prompt, which sets the path. Or if you chose to add plastimatch to your path during install, you can run an ordinary command prompt.
  • Navigate to the plastimatch install location. Type the following command line (OR copy the following line and paste it onto the command prompt using “mouse-right-click and paste”):

    plastimatch register "./sample/command_file_example.txt"
  • A deformable registration will be performed between sample CT and MRI images and the result will be saved in ”~/bin/sample” folder.

[Optional] Review images using an image viewer

  • There is no image viewer available inside the plastimatch, users are recommended to use a third-party software to see the images generated from plastimatch such as ”.nrrd” and “.mha” files.
  • Recommended software: 3DSlicer
  • Install the 3Dslicer
  • View image files using 3Dslicer
    • Drag&Drop the image files onto the 3Dslicer (available in up-to-date version)
    • Select images for overlay and review them by using the overlay slide bar.
