MITK

The Medical Imaging Interaction Toolkit (MITK)

The Medical Imaging Interaction Toolkit (MITK) is a free open-source software system for development of interactive medical image processing software. MITK combines the Insight Toolkit (ITK) and the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) with an application framework. As a toolkit, MITK offers those features that are relevant for the development of interactive medical imaging software covered neither by ITK nor VTK, see ToolkitFeatures for details.

MITK can be used or integrated with existing solutions in several ways, see ResearchPlatform for examples.

Information for users

Program modules

Among others the main application of MITK currently offers the following application modules:

  • Interactive segmentation of slices in image volumes, including interactive region growing and easy correction, interpolation of missing slices, surface generation, and volumetry

  • Point based registration of medical image volumes allows to match two images based on two corresponding sets of points
  • Rigid registration of images by combination of the ITK registration objects (transforms, optimizers, metrics, etc.)
  • Measurement of distances and angles
  • Volume visualization, GPU-based, easy to modify transfer functions
  • Movie generation (Windows only)
