A patch-based framework for new ITK functionality: Joint fusion, denoising, and non-local super-resolution
No opinion
In an earlier Insight Journal article, we introduced an ITK implementation of the adaptive patch-based image denoising algorithm described in [3]. We follow-up up that offering with a generalized non-local, patch-based ITK class framework and a refactored [...]

Perturbing Mesh Vertices with Additive Gaussian Noise
No opinion
This brief document provides an introduction to an external ITK module, DVMeshNoise. This module provides classes for perturbing the positions of the vertices of either an itk::Mesh or itk::QuadEdgeMesh with Gaussian noise. This may be useful in testing the [...]

Anomalous Diffusion Paradigm for Image Denoising Process
No opinion
Anisotropic and isotropic diffusion equations have been extensively applied on biomedical image processing for many years and a great diversity of algorithm have been proposed by the scientific community. Here, it is available a recent new implementation of [...]

Two Luis Miguel fans walk into a bar in Nagoya ---> (yada, yada, yada) ---> an ITK-implementation of a popular patch-based denoising filter
No opinion
This document describes an ITK implementation of the adaptive patch-based image denoising algorithm described in cite{Manjon:2010aa}. This offering consists of the templated class itkPatchBasedDenoisingImageFilter interfaced through the DenoiseImage program [...]

ND morphological contour interpolation
No opinion
This document describes a new class, itk::MorphologicalContourInterpolator, which implements a method proposed by Albu et al. in 2008. Interpolation is done by first determining correspondence between shapes on adjacent segmented slices by detecting overlaps, [...]

RLEImage: run-length encoded memory compression scheme for an itk::Image
No opinion
This document describes a new class, itk::RLEImage, which uses run-length encoding to reduce the memory needed for storage of label maps. This class is accompanied by all the iterators to make it a dropin replacement for itk::Image. By changing the image [...]

A new implementation of itk::ImageToImageFilter for efficient parallelization of image processing algorithms using Intel Threading Building Blocks
Modern medical imaging makes use of high performance computing to accelerate image acquisition, image reconstruction, image visualization and image analysis. Software libraries that provide implementations of key medical imaging algorithms need to efficiently [...]

Performance Benchmarking the Insight Toolkit
No opinion
This document describes a module for the Insight Toolkit (ITK) to assist in performance benchmarking and a suite of benchmarks for the toolkit. These resources provide metrics to quantify software computational performance. This is a pre-requisite to improve [...]

ITK in Biomedical Research and Commercial Applications
No opinion
The Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit ( has become a standard in academia and industry for medical image analysis. In recent years, the ITK developers' community has focused on providing programming interfaces to ITK from Python, Java, [...]

Integration of the Java Image Science Toolkit with E-Science Platform
No opinion
Medical image analyses rely on diverse software packages assembled into a “pipeline”. The Java Image Science Toolkit (JIST) has served as a standalone plugin into the Medical Image Processing Analysis and Visualization (MIPAV). We addressed shortcomings [...]
