A major diffculty in image guided therapy (IGT) is acquiring the patient's anatomy intraoperatively, which can be used for registering preoperative information. Intraoperative use of standard modalities has several limitations, such as low image quality (ultrasound), radiation exposure (computed tomography) or high costs (magnetic resonance imaging). An alternative approach is using a tracked pointer and registering the acquired points to surfaces identified in preoperative images.
Open DICOM Viewer is a small display of medical images. Aimed at displaying images in a web page or patient CD. Developed in Java 1.6.
The CYTOMINE project (started in 2010) is continuously developing a rich internet application using modern web technologies, databases, and machine learning to foster active and distributed collaboration and ease large-scale image exploitation. Our software is e.g. being used by life scientists to help them better evaluate drug treatments or understand biological processes directly from whole-slide tissue images, by pathologists to share and ease their diagnosis, and by teachers and students for pathology training purposes.
i2b2 has turned out to be a very valuable component for secondary use of routine clinical data. Its pragmatic database schema allows merging of data from heterogeneous data sources, and the intuitive user interface enables easy querying and powerful processing. However, it's a component rather than a complete solution: The user is facing several barriers when integrating i2b2 into the operational workflow.
CyberUnits is a cross-platform class library for rapid programming of high-performance computer simulations in life sciences. It supports modelling for biomedical cybernetics and systems biology with Object Pascal, S and Matlab.
DeVIDE, or the Delft Visualisation and Image processing Development Environment, is a cross-platform software framework for the rapid prototyping, testing and deployment of visualisation and image processing algorithms. The software was developed within the Visualisation group. DeVIDE's primary (and currently only) front-end is a data-flow boxes-and-lines network editor. In this regard, it is very similar to AVS, OpenDX, Khoros or VISSION. DeVIDE integrates functionality from libraries such as VTK, ITK, GDCM, DCMTK, numpy and matplotlib. It is being very actively developed.
SimThyr is a simulation program for thyroid homeostasis. It is based on a published nonlinear parametric isomorphic model of thyrotropic feedback control. Applications of SimThyr cover generation of hypotheses for biomedical research, education and presentation. Binaries and sourcecode are available for Mac OS, Mac OS X, Windows, Linux and other Unix derivatives.
Spectroscopic Image Visualization and Computing (SIVIC) is an open-source, standards-based software framework and application suite for processing and visualization of DICOM MR Spectroscopy data. Through the use of DICOM, SIVIC aims to facilitate the application of MRS in medical imaging studies.
MeVisLab represents a platform for image processing research and development with a focus on medical imaging. It allows fast integration and testing of new algorithms and the development of application prototypes that can be used in clinical environments.
SCIRun is a problem solving environment or "computational workbench" in which a user selects software modules that can be connected in a visual programing environment to create a high level workﬂow for experimentation. Each module exposes all the available parameters necessary for scientists to adjust the outcome of their simulation or visualization. The networks in SCIRun are flexible enough to enable duplication of networks and creation of new modules.
