The interactive deformation and visualization of volumetric objects is still a challenging problem for many application areas. We present a novel integrated system which implements physically-based deformation and volume visualization of tetrahedral meshes on modern graphics hardware by exploiting the last features of vertex and fragment shaders. We achieve(More)
We introduce a point-based algorithm for computing and rendering stream surfaces and path surfaces of a 3D flow. The points are generated by particle tracing, and an even distribution of those particles on the surfaces is achieved by selective particle removal and creation. Texture-based surface flow visualization is added to show inner flow structure on(More)
The epidemic of cholera that began in Peru in January, 1991, marked the first such epidemic in South America this century. Subsequently, over 533,000 cases and 4700 deaths have been reported from nineteen countries in that hemisphere. We investigated the epidemic in Trujillo, the second largest city in Peru. Trujillo's water supply was unchlorinated and(More)
Local and regional recurrence is the principal reason for treatment failure in squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the head and neck. The conventional method of evaluating surgical margins for cellular atypia does not always predict risk of local recurrence accurately. Immunostaining of surgical margins for tumor markers may provide a more precise evaluation(More)
Projection (or dimensionionality reduction) techniques have been used as a means to handling the growing dimensionality of data sets as well as providing a way to visualize information coded into point relationships. Their role is essential in data interpretation and simultaneous use of different projections and their visualizations improve data(More)
Transmission of rabies to man by vampire bats has been known for 60 years but there have been few reports of the features of rabies transmitted in this way. These aspects of the disease were investigated during an outbreak in Peru in early 1990. Between Jan 1 and April 30, 1990, 29 (5%) of 636 residents of the two rural communities in the Amazon Jungle in(More)
A household survey in 1991, at the onset of the Latin American cholera epidemic, investigated high attack rates in Trujillo, Peru, and determined the association between blood group O and severe cholera. Of 463 persons in 69 households, 173 (37%) reported diarrhea, 21% required rehydration therapy, and 4% were hospitalized; these treatment requirements(More)
