ITK is a powerful open-source toolkit implementing state-of-the-art algorithms in medical image processing and analysis. MATLAB, on the other hand, is well-known for its easy-to-use, powerful prototyping capabilities that significantly improve productivity.

With the help of MATITK, biomedical image computing researchers familiar with MATLAB can harness the power of ITK algorithms while avoiding learning C++ and dealing with low-level programming issues.
