Description : development platform for image-guided surgery applications
The Image-Guided Surgery Toolkit (IGstk: pronounced IGStick) is a high-level component-based
framework providing common functionality for image-guided surgery applications.
This software framework consists of a set of high-level components integrated with other
low-level open source software libraries and application programming interfaces (API) from
The cornerstone of IGstk is robustness. IGstk provides the following high-level functionality:
Ability to read and display medical images including CT and MRI in DICOM format.
An interface to common tracking hardware. A graphical user interface and visualization
capability including a four-quadrant view (axial, sagittal, coronal, and 3D) as well
as a multi-slice axial view (from 1 by 1 to many by many such as 10 by 10).
Registration: point based registration and a means for selecting these points. Robust common
internal software services for logging, exception-handling and problem resolution.
