MITK-GEM implements all its features as plugins for the Medical Imaging Interaction Toolkit (MITK) Workbench. It expands the MITK Workbench by offering a finite element model generation workflow with the following steps:
- Interactive image segmentation with 3D Graphcuts.
- Surface mesh generation.
- Tetrahedral mesh generation.
- Highly configurable material mapping procedure.
The complete workflow going from MITK-GEM to Ansys is demonstrated by extracting the proximal femur from a CT image and simulating a sideways fall.
