SYRMEP Tomo Project (STP)
SYRMEP Tomo Project (STP) has been developed for the users of the SYRMEP beamline of the Elettra synchrotron facility (http://www.elettra.eu) to perform the digital image processing required by parallel beam propagation-based phase contrast CT experiments. The underlying idea is to let users perform post-beamtime optimization, fine tuning and/or additional tests with common hardware at their home institution. The software has been also developed for teaching and educational purposes. SYRMEP Tomo Project is available only for Windows 64-bit machines.
If you use this software with data acquired at the SYRMEP beamline of Elettra please cite: F. Brun et al., Enhanced and Flexible Software Tools for X-ray Computed Tomography at the Italian Synchrotron Radiation Facility Elettra (2015) Fundamenta Informaticae, 141 (2-3), pp. 233-243, http://dx.doi.org/10.3233/FI-2015-1273.
For any other use of this software please cite: F. Brun et al., SYRMEP Tomo Project: a graphical user interface for customizing CT reconstruction workflows (2017) Advanced Structural and Chemical Imaging 3:4, http://dx.doi.org/10.1186/s40679-016-0036-8.
No installation required. The software is portable. Decompress the .zip file and run the .exe. The .zip file can be downloaded from the Releases section of this GitHub repository (https://github.com/ElettraSciComp/STP-Gui/releases/).
In most of the machines, the software runs without performing additional installations. In case of issues, consider that the following tools have to be installed in the user machine to correctly run the software:
- .NET Framework 4.0 (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17851)
- VC++ 2008 Redistributable x64 (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=15336)
- VC++ 2010 Redistributable x64 (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14632)
- VC++ 2015 Redistributable x64 (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=53840)
The installer for each of these tools is included into the "depend" folder within the .zip file of the SYRMEP Tomo Project.
NVidia GPU CUDA-compliant card is required to exploit the features provided by the ASTRA toolbox (https://astra-toolbox.readthedocs.org). For an adequate model please refer to the ASTRA documentation. Without a CUDA-compliant GPU the software runs correctly but only CPU-based reconstruction algorithms are available.
The software has been developed in collaboration with the University of Trieste (http://www.units.it) and CNR Nanotec (http://www.nanotec.cnr.it) and it is powered by the open source projects ASTRA-toolbox (https://astra-toolbox.readthedocs.org) and TomoPy (https://tomopy.readthedocs.org).
