"Instructors provided excellent explanation of framework for phase field and finite elements. Very empowering course."
—TMS2015 Course Attendee
This course consists of a lecture and hands-on exercises intended for new or existing users of Avizo software. The material covered in the training will introduce advanced 3D visualization and processing solutions for materials analysis. The course will highlight the important features and unique functionality of Avizo.

After a quick introduction, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions, see live demonstrations, and use the Avizo software. Temporary licenses will be provided.

Attendees must bring their own PC with suitable 3D graphics board for course participation. TMS will e-mail instructions about software distribution and installation up to one week in advance of the course.
Imaging scientists, researchers, directors of Imaging Centers, radiologists, microscope operators, nano- and micro-CT operators, and scientists and researchers interested in doing quantitative analysis of 3D data will benefit from this workshop.
  • General introduction to Avizo software
    • 3D visualization (slicing, volume rendering)
    • 3D image processing and segmentation
    • Surface and 3D mesh generation
  • Demos
    • Quantification and advanced measurements, including porosity
    • Fiber analysis
    • Skeletonization and image-to-simulation workflows
    • Material properties simulation, e.g., permeability
    • Tasks automation
Trevor Lancon operated micro-CT and SEM/EDS systems in the Cardiovascular Pathology Laboratory at Texas A&M University to inspect biomedical devices while studying radiological and nuclear engineering before joining FEI. Currently, he enjoys helping Amira and Avizo users develop solutions for their 3D analysis challenges. Lancon’s favorite aspect of supporting Amira and Avizo is the contribution he can make to researchers’ conclusions by training them in image analysis.
