ITK Examples Hackathon 2022

April 20, 2022

The Insight Toolkit (ITK) is an open-source, cross-platform toolkit for N-dimensional scientific image processing, segmentation, and registration. Documentation for the toolkit ranges from the ITK Software Guide textbook, to Doxygen API reference material, to C++ and Python examples.

The ITK Examples hackathon aims to bring together ITK developers and new users to expand documentation and learn to use ITK tools for scientific image processing.

We will focus on expanding and adding new examples to
