CODES AND EXECUTABLES
C++ codes of the multi-scale LDDMM algorithm of [Risser et al. TMI 2011], the geodesic shooting algorithm of [Vialard et al. IJCV 2011], and tools for the treatment of 3D images are freely available.
The codes can be downloaded using svn:
Recent executables for mac OSX, Linux 64 (compiled on Debian/i686) and Windows (compiled on Windows 7 - AMD E1) of utilzreg are also available here. Toy example 2D/3D images are also given.
HOW TO COMPILE THE CODE?
To compile the C++ code, simply use CMake and then your usual compiler. You have to set nothing at all with CMake, the program is self-contained. Until now, we have compiled it under Mac OS 10.6.7 and recent versions of Linux (Ubuntu/Debian) with gcc 4.2.1 and higher. We have also compiled the code under Windows using MS Visual C++ 2010 Express after revision 46 (19.09.2012).
HOW TO USE AN EXECUTABLE?
All programs are used in command line. To use an executable, say [toto], open a terminal, then go to the directory where [toto] is saved, then write the command line './[toto]'. It will explain you how to use [toto]. If you have a message like "Permission denied", enter the command 'chmod u+x [toto]' and try again './[toto]'.
HOW TO VISUALISE RESULTS?
Several of softwares allow to visualise 2D/3D/3D+t nifti images. Among them, we definitively like paraView, itk-SNAP, and 3D Slicer. Most of the time, we however use rview, the visualisation program of irtk.
HOW TO CONVERT A 2D OR 3D IMAGE INTO THE NIFTI FORMAT?
We use Convert3D. It converted all the 3D image formats we tried and also png images (the only 2D format we tried).
* All the codes work on non-compressed nifty images (.nii).
