Developed at INRIA, medInria is a free medical imaging software which aims at providing clinicians with state-of-the-art algorithms dedicated to medical image processing and visualization. Efforts have been made to simplify the user interface, while keeping high-level algorithms.

In terms of visualisation, it supports the viewing of 2/3/4D images, volume rendering, surface and volume meshes, and offers a multi-layer system. It has strong diffusion MRI support (tensor/fibers/ODF computation and visualisation, ROI-based filtering, ...), as well as solid registration capabilities (linear and non-rigid, composition, compare view,...). It also has basic support for segmentation and filtering. Thanks to ITK, we are capable of importing many different image types, and we also leverage the powerful DCMTK library to provide DICOM and PACS support.

With the release of medInria scheduled in mid-april 2013, under a BSD license, we hope to provide a platform that people will find easy to leverage. medInria’s architecture is plugin-based, thus simplifying the developpement of new functionalities.


After graduating in 2008 from ENIB, Florian worked for Diateam on Hynesim, a open-source information system simulator, and then for Telecom Without Borders. He now participates to the development of medInria at the Asclepios lab at INRIA Sophi-Antipolis, notably in the domain of cardiac electrophysiology.
