The Image Guided Therapy Toolkit is a toolkit being developed at the Brigham and Women's Hospital. The IGT toolkit is a set of open source software tools integrated with supported hardware devices: www.slicer.org 3D Slicer is our main platform for software development and dissemination, and OpenIGTLink is a communication protocol that allows Slicer3 to communicate with imaging devices, trackers and medical robots. We encourage you to download and use the free tools and welcome any comments or feedback.
See the Slicer3 Training page for additional tutorials on Slicer3 capabilities.
