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 [...]

Isotropic and Steerable Wavelets in N Dimensions. A multiresolution analysis framework.
This document describes the implementation of the external module ITKIsotropicWavelets, a multiresolution (MRA) analysis framework using isotropic and steerable wavelets in the frequency domain. This framework provides the backbone for state of the art [...]

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 [...]

OpenCL accelerated GPU binary morphology image filters for ITK
No opinion
Binary morphological operations are fundamental tools in image processing but the processing time scales with the number of pixels thus making them expensive operations on the CPU for larger 3D datasets that typically appear in medical imaging. Since erosion [...]

Anisotropic Fast Marching in ITK
No opinion
The Fast Marching algorithm is an efficient numerical method for computing the distance and shortest path between points of a domain. For that purpose, it solves a front propagation problem, which can be of interest in itself. The method has numerous [...]

Probabilistic Tissue Characterization for Ultrasound Images
No opinion
This document describes the derivation of the mixture models commonly used in the literature to describe the probabilistic nature of speckle: The Gaussian Mixture Model, the Rayleigh Mixture Model, the Gamma Mixture Model and the Generalized Gamma Mixture [...]

N-Dimensional Phase Unwrapping
No opinion
Although phase data can take on any value, it is generally only possible to measure phase as a principle value, i.e., wrapped within the range (-pi,pi]. Determining the unwrapped phase from its principle value is a topic of considerable interest in magnetic [...]

A Tutorial on Combining Nonlinear Optimization with CUDA
No opinion
Nonlinear optimization is a key component of many image registration algorithms. Improving registration speed is almost always desirable. One way to do this is to accelerate the optimization cost function using a parallel implementation. The purpose of this [...]
