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)

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.

SOFA is an Open Source framework primarily targeted at real-time simulation, with an emphasis on medical simulation. It is mostly intended for the research community to help develop newer algorithms, but can also be used as an efficient prototyping tool.

Grassroots DICOM (GDCM)

Your rating: None Average: 3.6 (10 votes)

Grassroots DICOM (GDCM) is an implementation of the DICOM standard designed to be open source so that researchers may access clinical data directly. GDCM includes a file format definition and a network communications protocol, both of which should be extended to provide a full set of tools for a researcher or small medical imaging vendor to interface with an existing medical database.

The MedinTux project is a medical records managing software which aim the most to adapt its users. Thereby it is build with the permanent purpose to assist and relieve its users in their daily work.

We’ve worked a lot on the user-friendliness side of the software, thinking that any medical practitioner not necessarily accustomed to computing could manage and edit his records without any external helps. And because every members of the dev-team is professionaly implicated in the healthy body, we’ve succeeded in the many aspects of doing such a software !
