Hello Angelo,
I use Python. I build blender, but do not modify source yet.
The building blender guide is 
For a short summary, you will download from git, download from svn, use 
CMAKE to configure your build.
After CMAKE outputs files, run those with gcc or XCode, or similar to 
make it happen.

 From what I guess, I could be wrong, but It seems like quite a task 
only showing the 3d view and video editor. doable, but lengthy You might 
save that for the end goal, but focus on building your python module for 
the medical 3d model part as the main segment.
