Abstract

In the following we will describe concept and realization of the Medical Exploration Toolkit — the METK. The METK is designed for loading, visualizing and exploring segmented medical data sets. It is a framework of several modules based on the free MeVisLab, a development environment for medical image processing and visualization. The framework is platform-independent and freely available. We will also present several different applications, developed with the METK.
