AtlasWerks is an open-source (BSD license) software package for medical image atlas generation. Such atlases are a widely-used tool for image segmentation, and deformations generated using these techniques are used for statistical analysis of brain shape to identify patterns of change related to disease progression. The AtlasWerks software package provides efficient CPU and GPU implementations of nonlinear deformation algorithms based on the Large Deformation Diffeomorphic Metric Mapping (LDMM) framework for single machines and clusters, command line frontends for atlas and deformation generation, and a number of utility programs for handling 3D medical image data.
