Kitware to Enhance the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) to Accelerate Community-Driven Medical Innovation
Date:5/7/2013

Clifton Park, NY (PRWEB) May 07, 2013

Kitware, a leader in scientific and medical computing, today announces the award of $2.4 million in research funding from the National Institutes of Health to enhance and extend the widely-adopted Visualization Toolkit (VTK). This open-source toolkit provides 3D interactive visualization, image processing, and analytics for a multitude of medical image analysis, bioinformatics, and clinical applications.

VTK originated in 1993 as part of the textbook "The Visualization Toolkit: an Object-Oriented Approach to 3D Graphics," and has since grown into a community of tens-of-thousands of users and developers worldwide. Researchers and software developers use VTK either directly in their development efforts, or indirectly through other open-source end-user applications or toolkits that are built on top of VTK including ParaView, Osirix, VolView, and the Image-Guided Surgery Toolkit.

Historically, VTK been indirectly funded by the development of related applications such as ParaView. This new award comes after a crescendo of requests from the VTK community to reinvigorate the toolkit as a catalyst for interactive visualization research in medicine. As such, this project will update the graphics infrastructure to support the representation and rendering of large data over the web, on mobile platforms, and with interactive 3D widgets. A VTK Extension Manager will also be deployed for easy discovery and download of extensions to VTK.

To fully understand the impact of the proposed refactoring and enhancements of VTK on the medical community, the team will work in close collaboration with the Virtual Lung Project at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the Center for Imaging Science at John Hopkins University, Information Sciences in Imaging Lab at Stanford, the National Association for Medic
