New Python package for microCT images

The Insight Toolkit (ITK) is a valuable tool for obtaining insight into images through computational analysis methods. The toolkit is well-suited for x-ray computed tomography image analysis, which are often stored in the DICOM format for clinical scanners.

ITK supports many other formats for data exchange: there is now preliminary support for Scanco microCT systems.

To install the associated Python package:

python -m pip install itk-ioscanco

This package provides the new Pythonic interface available in ITK 5, and can be used together with the ITK Python package. The classes will read Scanoco .ISQ files in their native format, providing 3D imaging data and metadata.

Enjoy ITK!
