To develop applications for image registration that can be distributed easily to other sites.

Approach, Plan

Our plan for the project week is to

  • Convert the SICLE image registration algorithm to use ITK.
  • Use CPack to package the sicle.exe program.
  • Setup and use a DART Dashboard at Iowa.
  • Select a license for software.
  • Compare and contrast the execution speed and memory requirements of the ITK sicle.exe with original lereg2.exe.
  • Investigate integration of wxWidgets with ITK and VTK.
  • Compare and contrast the performance of Kwwidgets and wxWidgets


  • Started taking apart our existing SICLE implementation and reorganizing classes. The code base is in need of renovation.
  • CDash has been set up.
  • Discussed licensing issues - need final decision.
  • Discussed performance issues involving porting our code to use ITK - particularly memory issues involved with strided images (complex conjugate symmetry).
  • Learned more about CMake and CPack.
