Finding good transfer functions for rendering medical volumes is difficult, non-intuitive, and time-consuming. We introduce a clustering-based framework for the automatic generation of transfer functions for volumetric data. The system first applies mean shift clustering to oversegment the volume boundaries according to their low-high (LH) values and their(More)
Previous approaches to remote pointing require the use of additional equipment such as stereo cameras or depth rangefingers, which affects the portability of the remote pointing solution. Most laptops come with a front-facing camera which can be exploited as an input device to remotely manipulate the cursor position without using the keyboard or mouse.(More)
Radiofrequency (RF) ablation is a good alternative to hepatic resection for treatment of liver tumors. However, accurate needle insertion requires precise hand-eye coordination and is also affected by the difficulty of RF needle navigation. This paper proposes a cooperative surgical robot system, guided by hand gestures and supported by an augmented reality(More)
Areal bone mineral density (aBMD) is used in clinical practice to diagnose osteoporosis. In previous studies, aBMD was estimated from diagnostic computed tomography (dCT) images, but a battery of medical tests was also taken that can be used to improve the regression performance. However, it is difficult to exploit the multimodal data as the additional(More)
Transfer functions play a key role in volume rendering of medical data, but transfer function manipulation is unintuitive and can be time-consuming; achieving an optimal visualization of patient anatomy or pathology is difficult. To overcome this problem, we present a system for automatic transfer function design based on visibility distribution and(More)
