Scientifics Gateways

The Virtual Imaging Platform (VIP) is a web portal for medical simulation and image data analysis. It leverages resources available in the biomed Virtual Organisation of the European Grid Infrastructure to offer an open service to academic researchers worldwide.


A set of plug-ings for the OsiriX/Horos DICOM viewer.


inTag GUI - Fusion image and strains plots.

inTag has been developed in order to compute and interact with myocardial strain analysis from tagged MR sequences. The user is guided by the program into five steps: specify input data settings (i.e. tag orientation, tag spacing), select a region of interest (ROI), compute motion fields, compute the endocardium and epicardium contours, compute and display analysis strain graphs (i.e. principal strains, circumferential and radial deformations, among others).

CMRSegTools - Graphical User Interface.

CMRSegTools is designed to ease cardiac and region segmentation of delayed-enhancement images for infarct sizing but also of parametric maps (T1, T2). As a first step, the user is assisted by the program to define the myocardium and compute the endocardium and epicardium contours in 2D or 3D. Several interactive segmentation methods are available: standard mean ± xSD, 2D or 3D full-width at half-maximum (FWHM) or more advanced such as Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM), and Hsu method.

CMRDiffTools GUI - Helix angle and coloured FA images.

CMRDiffTools is the most recent plug-in implemented to assist users in the extraction of information from cardiac diffusion data: mean diffusivity, diffusion anisotropy indices, fiber tracking, etc.
