Introduction and Acknowledgements
Plastimatch is an open source software for image computation. Our main focus is high-performance volumetric registration of medical images, such as X-ray computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET). Software features include:
- B-spline method for deformable image registration (GPU and multicore accelerated)
- Demons method for deformable image registration (GPU accelerated)
- ITK-based algorithms for translation, rigid, affine, demons, and B-spline registration
- Pipelined, multi-stage registration framework with seamless conversion between most algorithms and transform types
- Landmark-based deformable registration using thin-plate splines for global registration
- Landmark-based deformable registration using radial basis functions for local corrections
- Broad support for 3D image file formats (using ITK), including DICOM, Nifti, NRRD, MetaImage, and Analyze
- DICOM and DICOM-RT import and export
- XiO import and export
- Plastimatch Automatic deformable image registration
- Plastimatch DICOM-RT import
- Plastimatch LANDWARP Landmark
Important note: BSpline Deformable registration and LANDWARP modules do not show up for Slicer 4.2 on Mac
Sample data to use with modules.
