BACKGROUND: With the success of VTK and ITK software development kits, researchers from medical imaging are paying more and more attention to the software development in this field. OBJECTIVE: To put forward a medical imaging software system framework based on the seamless combination of VTK and ITK METHODS: The system framework was composed of integration of visual software package and image processing package, volume data processing, synchronous visualization and measurement analysis of volume data, integrating medical imaging data and pathology information management. And software system was implemented on linux platform. Volume data of upper airway were used to verify the feasibility and validity of system. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: The system is able to do visualization and image processing on volume data. MySQL is used to reasonably manage medical record and medical imaging data, uncertainty of measurement is less than 1% in volume and length.
