Pauline, FYI:

We are going to release VTKEdge in the near future. The library
provides GPU-based volumetric ray casting, specialized painters for
illuminated lines and surface LIC rendering, GPU-accelerated
filters for computing 2D LIC on vtkImageData or vtkStructuredGrid,
CPU and GPU versions of Feldkamp back projection, several GPU-accelerated
image processing algorithms, a suite of paintbrush vtk-widgets for 3D/2D
voxel and sub-voxel editing and sketching of segmentations and a couple of
CUDA enabled VTK-classes, (such as FFT implementation using CUDA),
paraview-modules to access some of the algorithms from Paraview's UI.

Its primarily meant be an add on to VTK.

The library will be released under a dual licensing scheme GPLv3/ 
Stay tuned.
