Jump to: navigation, search

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 the Toolkit Features for details.

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

Migration of our MITK Repositories and the Bugzilla Bug Tracker

We're happy to finally announce the migration of our Bugzilla bug tracker to a new system called Phabricator. All users of our bug tracker should already received an email on the migration. The new system is a modern, integrated solution for different services like repository hosting, code reviews, and many more.

We also moved our MITK repositories to Phabricator. If you cloned your local working copies from GitHub, you don't need to do anything. However, if you used the mitk.org URLs, you need to change the origin URL of your local working copies. For example, for MITK you would call git config from within the repository directory:

$ git config remote.origin.url https://phabricator.mitk.org/source/mitk.git

You easily find all new URLs in Phabricator Diffusion.
