Clinician and researcher end-user:

  • Direct integration with PACS systems. Conformity to DICOM Standard: Query/Retrieve/Send
  • Multimodal 2D and 3D image interactive visualization:
    • Control of the visualisation window (Window Width/Level)
    • Zoom and displacement
    • Image rotation (+90, -90) and vertical and horizontal views
    • Image annotations:
      • Landmarks
      • Measurements
      • Regions of interest (ROI)
    • Movie control: play forward, play back, infinite loop, speed control, etc.
  • Clinical workflow navigation to easily navigate through the workflow steps. Usable interface for clinical environment
  • Data: 3D images, surface meshes, volumetric meshes, signals and landmarks
  • Visualization: Multiplanar reformation, OrthoSlice, MultiSlice, Direct volume rendering, XRay, Maximum-intensity projection
  • IO formats: DICOM, vtk, vti, stl, Nifty, Analyze
  • Available on Windows platform, 32 and 64 bits. Beta version available on Linux platform and MAC
  • Included tools:
    • DICOM browser and PACS connection
    • Manual segmentation tool
    • Surface mesh manipulation tools: Smoothing, volume closing, mesh optimization, tetra generation, ring cut, skeletonization
    • Signal viewer
    • Landmark selection
    • Image processing tools

For developers:

  • C++ language
  • Plug-in architecture
  • Cross-platform using standard CMake tool
  • Easily integrate your own library and source code using CSnake tool
  • Based on common open source libraries (VTK, ITK, MITK, BOOST, wxWidgets)
  • Command line plugins to easily extend the framework
  • Automated GUI generation: Used an XML to describe the parameters of a filter (compatible with 3D Slicer). Use automated GUI generation to create the graphical interface.
  • Extensible Processing layer: supporting different processing data libraries integrated into the framework. For example, GIMIAS handles ITK image, VTK image, MITK image, CMGUI image and automatic conversion between them. See video here 
  • Extensible Rendering layer: support for different rendering libraries. CMGUI and MITK have been integrated as plugins that provide different rendering views. VTK image or a vtkPolyData can be rendered in CMGUI or MITK view. See video here
  • VTK, MITK and ITK execution module: Dynamic library module can execute filters (like vtkImageThreshold) directly using a DLL (like vtkImaging.dll). This reduces the effort needed to integrate processing toolkits.
