Summary0002393: Consolidate the image resample modules

Currently there are 4 modules for image resampling in the Slicer core, with significant overlaps between them. It's difficult to find out which one should be used, some of them are hidden in the module category hierarchy, and the user interfaces are very complex.

The 4 modules:
-Resample Scalar Volume
-Resample Image (BRAINS)
-Resample DTI volume
-Resample Scalar/Vector/DWI Volume

The "Resample Scalar/Vector/DWI Volume" covers almost everything. It just has the following limitations:

  • it's much more complex than the Resample Scalar Volume
  • the output size (corresponding to the requested spacing) has to be computed manually
  • it cannot add a grid to the output (it's the only unique feature of the "Resample Image (BRAINS)" module)

These 4 modules should be consolidated (have one module that can perform all the functions) and supported with a simplified user interface (maybe using a loadable module).

TagsNo tags attached.

Dirk, can you take a look at this scope out a plan?

"it cannot add a grid to the output (it's the only unique feature of the "Resample Image (BRAINS)" module)"

=> Since transform display is introduced into Slicer, this "add a grid to the output" feature is not needed anymore

Once the consolidation is done, it would be useful to add an auto-padding feature, which would optionally enlarge the reference volume to contain the complete transformed volume (to avoid any cropping).
