Installation of ITK

Method Overview | | ITK Dicom Examples

Download the source tarball from itk.org:

Build ITK with cmake (out-of-source build recommended):

tar xf InsightToolkit-4.4.2.tar.gz
mkdir ITK-build
cd ITK-build
cmake ../InsightToolkit-4.4.2
make

This may take some time to finish.

To shorten compilation we use the curses gui (ccmake .) to disable the following options:

  • BUILD_TESTING
  • BUILD_EXAMPLES

This brings compilation time to less than one hour.

Using a parallel build on a 4-core machine, brings the build time down to 15 minutes or so:

make -j4

Anyways, go get yourself a coffee!
