Two books on ITK software have been published, co-authored by Hans Johnson, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering and researcher at the Iowa Institute of

Biomedical Imaging

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 first book provides a general introduction to ITK including instructions for building and installing ITK; introduces the general architecture and design as well as basic system concepts; and explains how to create your own classes, extend the system, and be an active participant in the open-source ITK community.

The second book details the toolkit architecture that supports reading and writing of images to files, introduces the most commonly used filters found in ITK, discusses ITK’s capabilities for performing image registration, reviews ITK’s commonly used segmentation components, and describes ITK’s statistics functionalities.

For over a decade, researchers and developers around the world have processed their MRI, CT, ultrasound, PET, fluoroscopy, and microscopy data with ITK. Developed through extreme programming methodologies, ITK employs leading-edge algorithms for registering and segmenting multidimensional data.
