ImageScience was developed over many years since 1996, during my stays at the Image Sciences Institute of University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands, the Biomedical Imaging Group of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne in Switzerland, and the Biomedical Imaging Group Rotterdam of the Erasmus University Medical Center in the Netherlands. Many of the algorithms implemented in the library are based on existing literature. Nevertheless, writing a general purpose and full-proof library such as ImageScience is not completely trivial. Therefore, if you publish results that are based on it, I expect you to acknowledge me.
