The 3DHeartview project produced an advanced prototype of a system capable of modeling 3D cardiac structures, based on a single sequence of clinical angiographic X-rays, that can be used as an add-on to any modern digital angiography system. The system's accuracy has been measured, and our approach has been used in many real patient cases in a clinical routine environment. In this paper, we present the main features of the system, the methodology of 3D angiographical modeling, and certain…

Case study: visualization of 3D ultrasonic data

An improved surface-extraction procedure enables volume rendering of high quality within a few seconds on a normal work-station, thus making the complete system suitable for routine clinical applications.

Extracting surfaces from fuzzy 3D-ultrasound data

An improved surface-extraction volume rendering procedure is introduced, applied on the original data within the ROI areas for visualizing high quality images within a few seconds on a normal workstation, or even on a PC, thus making the complete system suitable for routine clinical applications.

Interactive visualization of large scalar voxel fields

A technique is given allowing interactive visualization of large, scalar, discrete volume fields as semitransparent clouds 'on the fly', i.e. without preprocessing, by using a scanline based method and a DDA-based traversing scheme instead of ray-tracing to achieve real-time processing during previewing.

Maximum Intensity Projection Using Splatting in Sheared Object Space

A new Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP) algorithm which was implemented employing splatting in a shear‐warp context is presented, allowing for a quantitative, predictable trade‐off between interactivity and image quality.

Case study: visualization of laser confocal microscopy datasets

The authors present a volume rendering system supporting the visualization of LCM datasets, a new microscopic tomographic method allowing for the first time accurate and fast in-vivo inspection of the spatial structure of microscopic structures, especially important in (but not restricted to) biology.

Optimized Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP)

An improved version of the MIP algorithm that requires roughly 2%–10% of the computational effort of the brute-force, straight-forward version and conserves the image quality and requires no pre-processing is presented.
