There are binary installers for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux which contain the application MITK Workbench. Additional to image loading/saving and level windowing currently the following plugins are included:

  • volume visualization
  • measurement
  • interactive segmentation with
    • 3D Regiongrower
    • Boolean Operation on segmentations
    • Deformable Clippingplane
