[slicer-users] How to extract a 2D slice from 3D volume?

One way to do this is to use "Create a DICOM Series" module to convert
your 3D image into a series of 2D slices:


After this you can use "Add volume" to select an individual slice,
check "Single file" checkbox on the bottom, and load this specific
slice. Then you can save this specific slice as a separate image (nrrd
or whatever you prefer). The limitation of this approach is you will
not be able to choose the axis along which the slices will be
extracted, but I don't see any other Slicer solution right away...

I copy the slicer user list, maybe there are other suggestions. In the
future, I suggest that you send your Slicer user questions to this
list to  get the most complete answer.
