MARVIN is a C++ application framework for rapid and simple development
of medical applications. It fulfills both requirements: being a fast
development tool for novel and elaborate algorithms and at the same
time providing a reliable and accurate basis to conduct clinical
studies. Its modular design allows acceleration in software
development by reusability and sharing of source code within project
groups. In addition, the MARVIN framework provides compatibility in
data exchange between collaborating research groups by defining a
simple data item structure. By using the MARVIN framework, software
solutions of different projects achieve a consistent structure, which
leads to simplified continuity of projects and preserves knowledge.
The MARVIN framework is based on various third party libraries, such
as Qt, VTK, ITK, DCMTK, Coin and DevIL. It can therefore be used on a
wide range of medical applications, including medical image analysis,
diagnosis and planning tools, and complex surgical navigation
applications. The framework supports various operating systems, such
as Linux, MacOS X and Sun Solaris. Currently, MARVIN is also being
ported to Windows XP.
For Co-Me researchers, the MARVIN core development team offers
introduction workshops and provides developer support.
