If you need to segment any structures, I recommend the use of Amira over Slicer 3D. However, if you wish to do anything highly innovative or quick preview/render, don't even touch Amira as the learning curve is a bit steep. Its segmentation capability has been very well explored by the individuals in the lab.

If you are good with Python and you are somewhat familiar with LSL, realxtend provide much better future for you.
