What: The Open Health Imaging Foundation (OHIF) and Kitware have teamed up to help you create amazing 3D zero-footprint medical imaging web applications using state-of-the-art open- source software. Did we mention it’s totally free and commercially friendly?!? Also, if you ever wanted to try the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) for the web but never knew where to start, now you can watch a few tutorial videos on VTK.js! Learn how to use VTK.js, and harness the power of 3D visualization on the web today!

This training course is split into four parts. First you will learn the background of the VTK and OHIF projects, and then you will learn how to start a VTK project. The third course does a deep dive into the architecture and tooling support in VTK, and the fourth course wraps up with an investigation into how VTK is used in the OHIF Viewer as a viewport extension. Course materials are available in Google Slides and expertly narrated videos by Forrest Li and James Petts, leading developers in the VTK.js and OHIF communities.
- Introduction to VTK.js and OHIF
- Developing with VTK.js:
- VTK.js Architecture and Tooling
- OHIF + VTK.js Integration
