Cancer And Phenomics Toolkit (CaPTk)

The Cancer Imaging Phenomics Toolkit (CaPTk) is a comprehensive imaging analytics suite providing algorithms that produce extensive panels of quantitative imaging features and integrate them into diagnostic and predictive models. Applications in CaPTk use those imaging features in diagnostic and predictive models to support optimized, personalized treatment planning.

These tools are inspired by clinical needs and refined in the context of active clinical research studies. The long-term goal of CaPTk is to help biomedical researchers leverage the wealth of information offered by various forms of imaging, leading to better understanding of the biological mechanisms of cancer development.

CaPTk provides an example of how advanced image computing may be used to guide treatment decisions via diagnostic and predictive models.

Computational tools in the suite and the graphical interface are principally developed and distributed by the Center for Biomedical Image Computing and Analytics at the University of Pennsylvania.
