AMI Toolkit is featured in our list as one of medical imaging development tools that use WebGL for complex browser-based 3D/ 2D visualization. You can review our list 15 WebGL Medical Visualization Projects.
AMI toolkit is developed by Fetal-Neonatal Neuroimaging Developmental Science Center at Boston Children's Hospital, which has several developers & researchers, They have released several open source medical imaging projects available at their Github.
The project is currently in active development, its adding new set of functions and features on every major release. The developers provided a list of tutorials packed with code samples. AMI toolkit comes With simple one page tutorial at the README.md on how to use AMI, install the requirement Three.JS, & use the package manager/ build system, which is enough for experienced developers.
Ami-viewer takes an array of data organized by series/stacks/frames (provided by the Ami-loader and displays it.
