Welcome to the home of the SimITK/SimVTK development environment for image analysis, visualization, and image-guided surgery.

SimITK/VTK is an implementation of the ITK and VTK C++ libraries in Matlab, specifically the simulink visual programming environment.

The advantage to this visual programming approach compared to scripting or C++ applications, are short development times and high maintailabilty due to the existence of pre-built SimITK/VTK models.

The main interest of this project is image-guided therapy. To support this, SimVTK blocks are available for surgical tracking devices and ultrasound video acquisition.
