LIFEx is a freeware enabling the calculation of a broad range of conventional, textural and shape indices from PET, MR, US and CT images. The software is written in Java and does not rely on any commercial libraries. LIFEx is designed for researchers, radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians and oncologists providing access to 42 histogram, textural and shape indices in addition to conventional metrics. The users have the flexibility to change calculation options (e.g. the resampling method and number of grey levels for textural analysis).

LIFEx reads DICOM images locally or over a network using a DICOM browser, is compatible with OsiriX and includes a powerful 3D reconstruction-based slice viewer. Volumes of interest (VOI) can be either imported from previously created files (RTSTRUCT) or drawn and manipulated using LIFEx. Results are exported in Excel format files. LIFEx runs on Windows, MacOs and Linux. LIFEx complies with the Image Biomarker Standardisation Initiative (IBSI).
