Since its foundation in 2005 software development has been of great importance for of the research group computed tomography of the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences - Wels Campus. The major aim in CT software development was and still is to develop non standard and highly innovative aglorithms for novel application areas of our project partners. In this context four applications were developed: SimCT is a fast GPU based simulator of a 3DCT device. Analyse_This! allows the evaluation of laser shots in a carbon matrix. nfinity facilitates data fusion of dual energy CT datasets as well as statistical analysis. Finally a comprehensive, plattform independent framework, integrating all former developments was designed to be the basis for all further implementations of the research group computed tomography: iAnalyse.
iAnalyse is a user friendly tool for scientific visualisation and 3D image processing. As graphical user interface the cross-plattform framework Qt is used, which facilitates an easy to use and attractive interface. In-house visualisation and image processing algorithms are supported by algorithms of the ITK and VTK toolkit, which make iAnalyse a powerful tool for both 3D visualisation and CT data analysis. iAnalyse is capable of loading various volume dataset formats as well as different surface model formats. It provides slice by slice navigation in its 2D views, common 3D navigation with arbitrary cutting planes in the 3D view, together with custom views for individual visualization. Information on the datasets, filters and ongoing tasks is provided in the tab control on the bottom of a dataset window. Besides its function as information central, the tab control is also used for transferfunction design in 3D visualizations.
Beyond this basic framework, iAnalyse is easily extensible to add new functionality. It serves as central development platform of the research group computed tomography and therefore integrates all algorithms and methods developed within the group. With the expansion of the development team, iAnalyse is ready to leap to the next level. Take your chance to experience iAnalyse!
