An Overview

The Medical Imaging Interaction Toolkit (MITK) is a versatile and flexible open-source project. It can be used as a C++ toolkit or application framework for software development. The following sections describe the most common usage scenarios.

I want to use MITK as an application

You will use the MITK Workbench as an end user and will find user manuals in User Manual and MITK Plugin Manuals.

I want to develop my own software framework, and use some of MITK's data structures and algorithms

You will use MITK as a toolkit and probably benefit most from the Build Instructions and MITK API Documentation.

I want to use the MITK and BlueBerry software framework to develop my own software

Here you have again two options.

I want use the MITK Workbench and extend its capabilities

You are using MITK as software framework and writing your own modules and plugins for MITK. You want to read the Build Instructions and further on Development. Also you might want to take a look at our CMake FAQ.

I want to create my own application based on MITK

This is probably the most common way to use MITK. You are using MITK as software framework and building your own project and application using MITK. You want to read Creating a new MITK project and the general information in Development. Also you might want to take a look at our CMake FAQ.
