Medical Imaging Interaction Toolkit (MITK)

Rating: 
Your rating: None Average: 4.8 (12 votes)

The Medical Imaging Interaction Toolkit (MITK) is a free open-source software system for development of interactive medical image processing software. MITK combines the Insight Toolkit (ITK) and the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) with an application framework. As a toolkit, MITK offers those features that are relevant for the development of interactive medical imaging software covered neither by ITK nor VTK.

Core features of the MITK platform:

DataViewer3D (DV3D)

Your rating: None Average: 2.6 (34 votes)

3D Slicer is an open source software platform for medical image informatics, image processing, and three-dimensional visualization. Built over two decades through support from the National Institutes of Health and a worldwide developer community, Slicer brings free, powerful cross-platform processing tools to physicians, researchers, and the general public.

Visualization Toolkit (VTK)

Rating: 
Your rating: None Average: 2.3 (6 votes)

The Visualization Toolkit (VTK) is an open-source, freely available software system for 3D computer graphics, image processing, and visualization. It consists of a C++ class library and several interpreted interface layers including Tcl/Tk, Java, and Python. VTK supports a wide variety of visualization algorithms including scalar, vector, tensor, texture, and volumetric methods, as well as advanced modeling techniques such as implicit modeling, polygon reduction, mesh smoothing, cutting, contouring, and Delaunay triangulation.

Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit (ITK)

Rating: 
Your rating: None Average: 3.2 (5 votes)

ITK is an open-source software toolkit for performing registration and segmentation. Segmentation is the process of identifying and classifying data found in a digitally sampled representation. Typically the sampled representation is an image acquired from such medical instrumentation as CT or MRI scanners. Registration is the task of aligning or developing correspondences between data. For example, in the medical environment, a CT scan may be aligned with a MRI scan in order to combine the information contained in both.

InVesalius

Rating: 
Your rating: None Average: 2.4 (16 votes)

InVesalius is a free medical software used to reconstruct structures of the human body. Based on two-dimensional images, acquired using Computed tomography or Magnetic resonance imaging equipments, the software generates virtual three-dimensional models correspondent to anatomical parts of the human body. After reconstructing three-dimensionally DICOM images, the software allows the generation of STL (stereolithography) files. These files can be used for Rapid Prototyping.

Dicom3tools

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (7 votes)

"Command line utilities for creating, modifying, dumping and validating files of DICOM attributes, and conversion of proprietary image formats to DICOM. Can handle older ACR/NEMA format data, and some proprietary versions of that such as SPI."

XMedCon

Your rating: None Average: 1.9 (7 votes)

The project stands for Medical Image Conversion. Released under the (L)GPL licence, it comes with the full C-source code of the library, a flexible command-line utility and a neat graphical front-end using the Gtk+ toolkit. The supported formats are: Acr/Nema 2.0, Analyze (SPM), Concorde/µPET, DICOM 3.0, CTI ECAT 6/7, NIfTI-1, InterFile3.3 and PNG or Gif87a/89a.

Dicom4j

Rating: 
Your rating: None Average: 1.3 (4 votes)

The purpose of the dicom4j platform is to provide java components related to the Dicom Standard. For those purpose, the platform is based on 4 areas:

  • framework: framework which implements the standards
  • toolkit: offer ways to easily develop software based on the framework
  • plugins: end-user components which adress commons needs you can find in most dicom applications
  • apps: stand alone applications for end-user or tests purpose
