International MIView PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 12 April 2011 18:47
I was curious why this website was getting so much traffic from Italy... and I found out someone has posted a review (and video) of MIView. It's all in Italian, but its pretty interesting to see that people are interested in using the program even through it is not in their native language.

New versions of MIView! (32 and 64-bit) PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 08 February 2011 19:37

It's been a LONG time since I've updated this website, mainly because I was finishing up graduate school over the past 18 months. Now that I've graduated, I've gotten back into MIView development. 32 and 64-bit versions are now available, and I've begun to modernize the program including using standard template libraries. The volume rendering works correctly now, and there is a new 256 pixel icon. The latest version (available from sourceforge) was compiled with Visual Studio 2010, and for the first time runs correctly as a 64-bit executable.

I was holding off on using STL and templates originally because I planned to do cross platform development, and according to wxWidgets coding style, these features are not available on all platforms. However, this doesn't appear to be the case any longer at all. GCC, Windows, Mac compilers all support templates and STL... so that's the way to go. Hopefully development will continue on MIView!

MIView to become open source! PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 09 August 2009 11:31
After a long debate, with myself, I've decided to make MIView open source under the GPL v3 license. I had originally started writing MIView with three goals in mind: 1) its fun to learn this stuff 2) people may be able to use it 3) maybe someone will pay for it. Turns out it was a lot of fun to make, and people do use it (nearly 2000 downloads from download.com). I also no longer have a lot of time to devote to developing it, and rather than let it fizzle, I've decided to make it open source. I will continue to maintain the project and hope that the medical imaging community will contribute to its development. In the next couple weeks I will make the source code available on sourceforge.net under the shortname miview.

Switch to VTK? PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 03 March 2009 17:55
Should I switch the basic drawing functions of MIView to use the visualization toolkit (VTK)? I think its inevitable. VTK contains so many functions, such as reslicing 3D volumes, complete volume rendering, mouse interaction, and many more, that would take me years to duplicate on my own. It's a robust, cross-platform library that is constantly updated. Why not? I've found a nice wxVTK window interface so I can still use the wxWidgets functionality. Only problem with all of this is time Smile. Since I'm now in grad school, I've got no time left. But should I start working on MIView again, VTK is the way to go.
