FROM THE ITG WEB ARCHIVES:

The ITG Technical Reports served as a resource to assist researchers with imaging related equipment, software, and systems administration. These reports were highly detailed publications, dealing with a variety of subjects to enable users of the imaging facilities and of ITG software to get a wealth of information about a topic immediately online. The publication of these reports was phased out in 2004 and they are no longer in production. However, they exist here for reference and historical purposes (in either .pdf or html format depending on the date).
