            ANTs extracts information from
            complex datasets that include imaging (<a
            href="http://brianavants.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/avants_wordcloud.jpg">Word
            Cloud</a>).  Paired with <a
            href="http://stnava.github.com/ANTsR/">ANTsR</a> (answer),
            ANTs is useful for managing, interpreting and
            visualizing multidimensional data. ANTs is <a href="https://sourceforge.net/projects/advants/files/ANTS/stats/timeline?dates=2010-07-19+to+2099-05-25">popularly</a> considered
            a state-of-the-art medical image registration and segmentation toolkit. ANTsR is an emerging tool supporting standardized
            multimodality image analysis.  ANTs depends on the Insight
            ToolKit  <a href="http://www.itk.org">(ITK)</a>, a widely used  
            medical image processing library to which ANTs developers contribute.
