Situs inversus totalis occurs in approximately 50% of PCD patients (Kartagener's syndrome in PCD), and there are a few reports of PCD with heterotaxy (situs ambiguus), such as(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Three-dimensional (3D) real-time volume rendering has demonstrated improvements in clinical care for several areas of radiological imaging. We test whether advanced real-time rendering techniques combined with an effective user interface will allow radiologists and surgeons to improve their performance for cardiothoracic surgery(More)
PURPOSE Interpretation time of serial staging chest CT cases, which each contained current and previous examinations, with a simple prototype workstation called filmstack was experimentally compared with interpretation time with a film alternator. MATERIALS AND METHODS The filmstack displayed a "stack" of sections for each examination; user controls(More)
1. ABSTRACT Real-time volume rendering of medical image datasets on commercial hardware became possible in 1993. We have developed an application, SeeThru, that allows real-time volume visualization under the interactive control of the physician. This ability enables the physician to look inside of the patients body to visually comprehend the information(More)
