Living cells are 3D objects with a complex inner structural organization. Understanding this organization and its relation to biological function constitutes a major challenge for cell biologists. This paper discusses the special properties of volumetric cell data (e.g., noise, discontinuity, raggedness) and the particular difficulties encountered when(More)
We present a special architecture for arbitrary parallel projection for visualiza-tion of volumetric data. Using a ray-casting technique, parallel memory access, and pipelined processing of rays in a composition tree, we can achieve interactive rendering rates for a 512 3 dataset. 1.1 The Cube Architecture Cube is a special-purpose computer architecture for(More)
The hardware realization of an advanced prototype of the Cube volume visualization system, Cube-3, is presented. The primary hardware component of Cube is a viewing and rendering multiprocessor with distributed 3D voxel memory. Cube-3 design is based on our experience with two earlier prototypes: Cube-1 realized in hard­ ware using printed circuit board(More)
