Fifth International Workshop on Systems and Architectures for Computer Assisted Interventions
No opinion
Open interfaces/frameworks increase the pace of research and discovery by promoting collaborations within and between clinicians, biomedical engineers, and software developers. These systems usually employ modular architectures to model the complexity [...]

Seamless VTK-ITK pipeline connection for image data handling
Often times developers face the need to connect ITK and VTK pipelines to handle image data. For this purpose, image data importer and exporter classes have been implemented both in ITK and VTK. However, as evident from frequent questions in the ITK and [...]

Towards an open-source pipeline for patient-specific neurosurgery simulation
Surgery simulation is a technology based on interactive biomechanics as well as haptic and visual rendering for training novice surgeons. Another important component of a surgery simulator is the representation of a patient's anatomy in terms of simple [...]

Implementation of local structure tensor and enhancement anisotropic diffusion filters in ITK
This paper describes implementation of local structure tensor and anisotropic enhancement diffusion filters using the Insight Toolkit. The anisotropic diffusion filters are implemented using ITK's finite difference solver framework. The filters are used to [...]

Vessel Enhancing Diffusion Filter
No opinion
This paper describes vessel enhancing diffusion (VED) filters implemented using the Insight Toolkit (ITK). The filters are implementation of the VED algorithm developed by Manniesing et al . The VED algorithm follows a multiscale approach to enhance [...]

Enabling ITK-based processing and 3D Slicer MRML scene management in ParaView
No opinion
This paper documents on-going work to facilitate ITK-based processing and 3D Slicer scene management in ParaView. We believe this will broaden the use of ParaView for high performance computing and visualization in the medical imaging research community. The [...]

Robot assisted prostate surgery using augmented reality with deformable models
No opinion
We present preliminary results of our work to develop an augmented display for improved visualization of the prostate and surrounding critical anatomy for robot-assisted prostate surgery. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in [...]

An ITK Implementation of Physics-based Non-rigid Registration Method
As part of the ITK v4 project efforts, we have developed ITK filters for physics-based non-rigid registration (PBNRR), which satisfies the following requirements: account for tissue properties in the registration, improve accuracy compared to rigid [...]

IGSTK: Building High Quality Roads with Open Source Software
No opinion
This paper is a position statement on the benefits that an Open Source toolkit can bring to the field of image guided surgery. The particular example discussed here is the IGSTK toolkit. IGSTK is an open source software project designed for supporting the [...]
