Description

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.

Upcoming modulesystem change alert!

Due to large number of applications and their versions it is not practical to keep them explicitly listed at our wiki pages. Therefore an upgrade of modulefiles is underway. A feature of this upgrade will be the existence of default module for every application. This default choice does not need version number and it will load some (usually latest) version.

You can test the new version now by adding a line

source /cvmfs/software.metacentrum.cz/modulefiles/5.1.0/loadmodules

to your script before loading a module. Then, you can list all versions of itk and load default version of itk as

module avail itk/ # list available modules
module load itk   # load (default) module


If you wish to keep up to the current system, it is still possible. Simply list all modules by

module avail itk

and choose explicit version you want to use.

Notice: This application supports parallel computing (MPI, OpenMP) which can have weird consequences. For more details about parallel computing visit the page Parallelization.
