Three-dimensional image reconstruction software tools | Nuclear medicine imaging analysis
Computer technologies can produce 3D representations of interesting human tissue and organs that have been serial-sectioned, dyed or stained, imaged, and segmented for 3D visualization. 3D reconstruction also has great potential in the fields of tissue engineering and 3D printing.
Provides a Platform-independent Object-Oriented framework for all data manipulations in tomographic imaging. STIR can be used to study existing and/or new reconstruction algorithms for a wide variety of cylindrical scanners. It enables the research community to study the performance of several algorithms on Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) data, and potentially implement new algorithms by expanding the existing framework. The tool offers the prospect to compare different Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanners using identical correction and reconstruction software.
Provides GPU-accelerated reconstruction tools for emission and transmission computed tomography. NiftyRec manages multiple methods such as Synchrotron X-Ray Tomography and Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT). The software performs a highly optimization of back-projection and core iterative reconstruction routines. This tool can also serves for developing reconstruction algorithms by using the Matlab and Python interfaces.
Reconstructs images and can conduct analysis facilitating high-throughput parallel processing. NiftyPET determines the distributions of regional and voxel value uncertainties through the use of list-mode bootstrapping. It supports dynamic list-mode (LM) processing and reconstruction. This tool permits to ascertain the impact of limited counting statistics in positron-emission tomography (PET) on all the different stages of image reconstruction and analysis.
Offers functions to display images and surfaces. AMILab contains two-dimensional function plot and histogram scripts. It employs the automatic wrapping of the VTK and wxWidgets to proceed. The tool scripting language features can be extended with manual and automatic wrapping. It can be useful for: sub-images, resizing, arithmetic operations, Gaussian convolutions, mathematical morphology, distance transforms and skeletonization.
