ITK: The Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit
The National Library of Medicine Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit (ITK), or Insight Toolkit, is an open-source, cross-platform C++ toolkit for segmentation and registration. 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.
The toolkit may be built from source using CMake.
