Medical image computing researchers often face the problem of moving promising new algorithms from the proof of concept stage into a form compatible with clinical use. Algorithm developers lack the time and resources to engineer their code for robustness and compatibility, while end-users are anxious to try new techniques but require well designed and tested user interfaces to make practical use of them. The NA-MIC Kit is a collection of software and methodology specifically designed to address… CONTINUE READING
