Introduction to Programming for Image Analysis with VTK
by Xenophon Papademetris
Publisher: Image Processing and Analysis Group 2006
Number of pages: 238
This book is an edited collection of class handouts that I wrote for the graduate seminar "Programming for Medical Image Analysis" that was taught at Yale University, Department of Biomedical Engineering, in the Fall of 2006. My goal for the class was to provide sufficient introductory material for a typical 1st year engineering graduate student with some background in programming in C and C++ to acquire the skills to leverage modern open source toolkits in medical image analysis and visualization such as the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) and, to a lesser extent, the Insight Toolkit (ITK).
