Triplanar view for 3D images in napari

Hi napari team,

Thank you so much for creating this very great tool!

I am using napari to view 3D medical MRI images and I was wondering if there is a way to have a triplanar viewing mode enabled? In other words, it would be quite helpful to be able to view a 3D image stack in three orthogonal planes simultaneously, as opposed to having to roll the dimensions individually (without being able to see all 3 planes simultaneously).

Much appreciated,


Hi Omar

I’m glad you’re having a good experience with napari so far, and thanks for bringing up this important use case!

We don’t support that functionality right now, but it is something we’d like to support. There’s been some discussion of that feature in issue #760 and it is on our roadmap for up coming releases.
