Introduction


The main idea of this package was to create a standard set of tools that can be used for many purposes in manipulating images and rendering results in different BBTK viewers. This document explains in detail the boxes that belong to the package utilities. Here you can find their description in conjunction with their inputs and outputs.

Requirements

Windows


  1. Visual Studio 7 2003

  2. CMake 2.4 patch 6

  3. Sofa_2008a

  4. Latest version of BBTK

  5. Environment variables:

    1. BBTK_DIR = C:\Creatis\bbtk-1.0

    2. WXWIN = C:\Creatis\Sofa_2008a\wxWidgets-2.8.5_sofa_bin

    3. VTK_DIR =C:\Creatis\Sofa_2008a\vtk5.0.3_sofa_bin

    4. SOFA =C:\Creatis\Sofa_2008a

Steps for compilation


  1. Copy the utilities package in your computer the distribution of the package contains two folders as shown in the next figure /UtiliitesPackage (In this case my path is C:\CAT08\Desarrollo\UpgradeBBTKJulio9\Utilidades)



Compilation Steps 1 Utilities distribution

  1. Look for the CMakeLists.txt in the utilities folder and put it the CMake installed. Whe it opens you should define the bin path for the package as /UtiliitesPackage/UtilitiesBin and press configure for choosing the compiler with which are you going to work.



Compilation Steps 2 Choosing the compiler

  1. The CMake is going to show an error because the METZ_SRC folder is not found, So presses Accept and set up the path where the metz folder is, it comes with the utilities distribution. After defining the METZ_SRC path presses configure.



Compilation Steps 3: METZ_SRC_ NOT FOUND



Compilation Steps 4 METZ_ SRC definition

  1. Now we need to turn on the BUILD_BBTK_PACKAGE_Utilities variable such that we can create the utilities package (bbUtilities.dll). Presses configure.



Compilation Steps 5 activating the BUILD_BBTK_PACKAGE variable

  1. Check out if the variables USE_VTK and USE_WXWIDGETS are ON. Presses Configure



Compilation Steps 6 Cheking VTK_USE and USE_WXWIDGETS variable

  1. If the VTK_DIR environment is not set up in your pc or if CMake can’t find the vtk distribution an error will be shown, as the next figure but don’t worry, just presses Accept and set up the vtk path. Presses Configure.



Compilation Steps 7 Vtk path to binary distribution (COMPILED)



Compilation Steps 8 Defining VTK Path to the binary distribution

  1. Activate the check box show advanced values and verify the CMake configuration , for example the bbtk distribution path, vtk path, wxwidgets path etch.



Compilation Steps 9 Final Configuration

  1. Press OK. The visual studio project is ready for compiling in the /UtilitiesBin :



Compilation Steps 10 visual studio project

BBTK Configuration


For using the package you should configure the configuration file of BBTK, in which you can define the your bbs paths and your package paths using the next xml tags:





These paths are where you have all your bbs files and your personal packages or other packages that you are using. The next figure shows a BBTK configuration.





BBTK Configuration 1 BBTK Configuration file

For accessing to this file you should execute the bbi.exe and go to Tools > Edit BBTK config

Cataxis


This box saves the axis extracted from a vessel of a dataset. This box respect the dataset directory structure defined in the CAT competition. This directory structure has four folders; each one representing a vessel, named as vessel0, vessel1, vessel2 and vessel3. In each of these vessels there are 4 files that represent the start point, end point, point A and point B as defined in the CAT competition. This box is designed such that it can save in files the axe points calculated in execution and the point given by the user for starting maracas algorithm. Besides it save the axis points in ordered such that the first point is the closer point to the aortha.

Point


This box was created to separate the events of connecting “boxChange” and “boxExecutes” to the rest of the pipeline in case you have different boxes that take a point as input. In this case you can connect the boxChange from a CommandButton to the viewer and connect the output point of the viewer to this box. The rest of the boxes that take a point as input will read it from this box instead of the viewer, resulting only in executing one branch of the pipeline.
