Introduction to Programming for Image Analysis with VTK 2nd Edition

Introduction to Programming for Image Analysis with VTK

“Introduction to Programming for Image Analysis with VTK 2nd Edition” is an edited and expanded collection of class notes that we wrote for the graduate seminar “Programming for Medical Image Analysis” (ENAS 920a) that was taught at Yale University, Department of Biomedical Engineering, in the Spring of 2009.


This book is meant to be an introductory guide. Many of the definitions are informal, much like one teaches math at 1st grade. As the student progresses and begins to understand the introductory material, then he/she should look at more specialized books which offer a deeper insight into what is going on. The manual pages for many of these toolkits also become useful at this point.
Most of our graduate students – the intended audience for this book and class – while having a strong applied mathematics/signal processing background, are not expert programmers. Frequently, they would have had some programming classes at the undergraduate level and would have been, most likely, exposed to C/C++ at some point. However, with rare exceptions, a dive into the combination of object-oriented and generic programming model used in ITK, for instance, would leave most of them befuddled.
