CamiTK: Computer Assisted Medical Intervention Tool Kit

CamiTK (Computer Assisted Medical Intervention Tool Kit) helps researchers and clinicians to easily and rapidly collaborate in order to prototype CAMI applications, that feature medical images, surgical navigation and biomechanical simulations.

Knowledge gathering

CamiTK avoids reinventing the wheel by gathering the knowledge and know-how from several research fields:

  • perception (visualization, interaction, processing and analysis),
  • reasoning (3D geometries, interaction, biomechanics),
  • and action (tracking, navigation, robot control).

Prototype medical apps

CamiTK provides fast and stable tools for prototyping medical applications for clinicians and the medical industry.

Fast technological transfer

Thanks to its architecture, CamiTK allows fast technological transfer between students, PhD, research scientists, clinicians and industrial partners.

Easy integration of algorithms, data, and devices

CamiTK provides simple ways to integrate and validate new algorithms with already existing tools. It follows a Component-Based Software Engineering design where data types, algorithms, sensors, viewers and user interaction are made available by extensions (plugins).

Free and open source

Written in C++, CamiTK is free to use, open source and well documented. Feel free to contribute!

Cross platform

CamiTK is based on open-source cross-platform libraries (such as Qt for the user interface and VTK for the visualization) and builds with cmake: several platforms are supporteed, including Windows and Linux.
