Welcome to the National Library of Medicine Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit (ITK).  ITK is an open-source, cross-platform system that provides developers with an extensive suite of software tools for image analysis.  Developed through extreme programming methodologies, ITK employs leading-edge algorithms for registering and segmenting multidimensional data. The goals for ITK include:

  • Supporting the Visible Human Project.
  • Establishing a foundation for future research.
  • Creating a repository of fundamental algorithms.
  • Developing a platform for advanced product development.
  • Support commercial application of the technology.
  • Create conventions for future work.
  • Grow a self-sustaining community of software users and developers.
