Abstract: In this paper we present the structure and the achieved results of the R&D project IKTA-4, 6/2001 MEDIP - Platform independent software system for medical image processing supported by the Hungarian Ministry of Education. The aim of the project was to develop a software background for our basic and applied research in the field of medical imaging that can be used in clinical routine, as well. Realization was based on the experience of information technology and medical imaging research university teams and a company specialized on software and hardware developing for nuclear medicine. The aims also reflect some former research and development activities of the participants. Thus some of them are well experienced in registration, segmentation and image fusion techniques. These experiences were also considered in the determination of the main purposes. The capabilities of the provided software library were demonstrated through test applications from the fields of orthopedics, oncology and nuclear medicine.
