The Lesion Sizing Toolkit (LSTK)

Linux macOS Windows
CircleCI TravisCI AppVeyor

Overview

This is a module for the Insight Toolkit (ITK) that provides a generic, modular, and extensible architecture for lesion sizing algorithms in medical images as well as a reference algorithm for lung solid lesion segmentation in CT images.

Installation

Python

Binary Python packages are available for Linux, macOS, and Windows. They can be installed with:

python -m pip install --upgrade pip
python -m pip install itk-lesionsizingtoolkit

Data

The project has extensively used the CT lesion data assembled by NIST for the Biochange 2008 Pilot Study. The data collection can be obtained via ftp from here.

The team participated in the Volcano'09 Challenge benchmark.

The project has also been used on the BioChange 2011 study. The clinical data used here was chosen from the publicly available Reference Image Database to Evaluate Therapy Response (RIDER) database and from the NIST-generated CT phantom series. 96 pairs of clinical datasets are present. Datasets have slice thickness varying from 0.63 to 2.5 mm. Kitware's results on the Biochange2011 challenge may be found here.
