Cannot load segmentations from KITS challenge due to unknown pixel type
Open, NormalPublic


@d246a informed me, that she is not able to load the segmentation niftis provided in the dataset of the KITS challenge. The error message is:

image.png (139×466 px, 71 KB)

I checked the files with a simple python script and it turned out, that the value type is 64-bit signed integer, which we do not support yet.
A quick workaround was to convert the segmentations using this script:

import os
import SimpleITK as sitk

root = "/home/kleina/E132-Projekte/temp_data/dtrofimova/kits2021/case_00000/segmentations"

filename = 'artery_instance-1_annotation-1.nii.gz'
filename_out = 'output.nii.gz'

file_to_load = os.path.join(root, filename)
outputImageFileName = os.path.join(root, filename_out)

input_image = sitk.ReadImage(file_to_load)


cast_image = sitk.Cast(input_image, sitk.sitkInt8)

sitk.WriteImage(cast_image, outputImageFileName)

A possible solution could be to add the value type to the supported ones in cmake (MITK_ACCESSBYITK_INTEGRAL_PIXEL_TYPES).

I tried to add

The superbuild worked, but now the workbench crashes during the load attempt with:
