Summary0003944: Slice view annotation improvements
  1. Allow configuring annotations the same way as all other slice view options (such as selected foreground/background volume, opacity)
    • show GUI controls in the slice view controller
    • set them for all slices/just one depending on slice link state

These could all be relatively easily implemented if the functionality would be in vtkMRMLSliceCompositeNode. Implementation would be simpler than now and would be much more capable.

  1. Load defaults from slicer.ini but save state in scene load state from scene

  2. Allow customization of displayed fields

Have a list of fields (DICOM tags, slice view options, strings extracted from certain nodes) and allow the user to define any content in any corner by a format string. For example:
Top left: [ForegroundVolumePatientName][NewLine][BackgroundVolumePatientName]
TopRight: [ForegroundSeriesDate][ForegroundSeriesTime]

  1. Allow DICOM annotation persistency option for DICOM foreground + non-DICOM background image (currently it is asymmetric, only works for non-DICOM foreground and DICOM background)

  2. Allow showing multiple scalar bars (foreground, background, label volumes)

  3. Observers are not removed

  4. Need to check if text actors are not rebuilt unnecessarily

TagsNo tags attached.

ad 3: How would a non-expert user know what the list of accepted terms is?

In the simplest case there could be a description at the input boxes where all the fields are described.

It can also work like how you add your contacts to the email To: field and your contact list. For example, you have a list of fields/contacts and if you double-click on one then it is added to the text in the input box.

Slice view annotations also significantly slow down slice browsing, due to doing lots of (unnecessary) recomputations. For example, if a slice node is changed but selected volume uid remains the same then most corner annotation text can remain unchanged.
