The Debian Med has integrated a lot of medical imaging software. An overview is given here:

for example GDCM, ITK, VTK and we actively try to include more (see our todo list at the bottom of the linked page). Medical imaging became a very strong branch of the Debian Med project and besides the introduction what software is just installable inside Debian I would like to discuss with the audience what might be needed next to possibly fullfill user needs even better.


I’m a physicist by profession and working as an information scientist at a medical institute. I’m using Free Software since 1994 and became a Debian Developer in 1998. The Debian Med project was initiated by me in 2002.
