Sight, the Surgical Image Guidance and Healthcare Toolkit facilitates the creation of software based on medical imaging.
It includes various features such as 2D and 3D medical image processing (CT/MRI/US), video processing, visualization, augmented reality, and connectivity with tracking systems. It can be used to write navigation systems, simulators, planning software, or even simple video filtering applications.
Sight is written in C++ and built on top of the best open-source libraries in the field such as OpenCV, ITK, VTK, PCL, and Qt and makes their usage easier by providing data common formats and wrappers. It is based on a modular object/service architecture, making building software application as simple as connecting together data, algorithms and user interface. It runs on Windows and Linux and is freely available under the LGPL.
