Robarts Training Session
The NA-MIC Kit is a free open-source software platform for biomedical researchers and algorithm developers working in the fields of medical image analysis, visualization and image-guided therapy. This NA-MIC Kit Software Workshop is a two-day interactive course allowing scientists and trainees to learn about the NA-MIC Kit, including 3D Slicer, The Visualization Toolkit (VTK), The Insight Toolkit (ITK) and CMake. Participants will receive hands-on training in the end-user applications and software libraries, making this course applicable to both clinical users interested in using the software for their image analysis and visualization tasks, and software developers considering using the NA-MIC Kit as their software platform.
