[slicer-users] Is there a nudge tool in 3D Slicer to adjust a contour (manually drawn boundary)?

Hi there,

3D Slicer is now being used in our ImageLab by radiologists and
physician assistants to study coronary arteries. I get a new
requirement to see if 3D Slicer has a tool to adjust a manually drawn
boundary around a coronary artery. For example, in the "Editor"
module, after draw a boundary using the "Draw" tool icon, is there
another tool I can use to fine-tune it?

There is a tool in Osirix call "Repulsor" which is very easy to use,
and the radiologist wants to have in 3D Slicer. A video on Youtube (as
below) demonstrate what it is.

Please let me know if there is already such a tool implemented in 3D
Slicer, or is there is some classes useful in VTK that can let me I
implement it in 3D Slicer.
