Automated Containerized Medical Image Processing Based on MITK and Python
Modern medical image processing employs an ever widening array of tools on an ever larger pool of data. Development of the tools takes place on a variety of different platforms, determined by external circumstances, such as the availability of necessary functionality as libraries forcing the use of a specific programming language or interdependencies of third party tools requiring specific versions of specific operating systems. This problem itself is not unique to medical imaging and solutions such as Docker have proven themselves useful in a variety of use cases.
