The Image Registration Toolkit (called IRTK) is not related to the Insight Toolkit (also called IRTK). By coincidence both packages use the same acronymn. If you are looking for the Insight Toolkit please visit http://www.itk.org
18 December 2007
: A new version of the Image Registration Toolkit has been released. Major improvements include support for the NIFTI file format and more compact parameter files for the registration. For more information on how to use IRTK look here
22 May 2006: Several problems have been fixed in the windows version of the software. Also, the file formats for transformation files have been changed and are now more compact.
