This paper introduces an integrated 3D medical image processing and analyzing software platform which is open interface and freely available. The platform consists of the Medical Imaging Toolkit (MITK) and the 3-Dimensional Medical Image Processing and Analyzing System (3DMed). MITK is an algorithm toolkit for research and software development, while 3DMed is a MITK based application system with a plug-in framework. The overall architecture and main capabilities of the platform are described in detail. Presented evaluations demonstrate that the platform can benefit the development of computer assisted intervention systems.
