I have used Slicer extensively. It is generally a positive experience.
Slicer has a python console from which you can call wrapped itk and vtk
functions. It is fairly easy to make a little GUI (in either python or C++)
for setting parameters. Also, the developer mailing list is quite responsive.
But it does have a steep learning curve.
