A Method for 3-d Image Representation Using a Surface Model

Abstract

Three-dimensional (3-D) imaging in medicine includes visualization, manipulation and analysis of structural information captured in 3-D (and higher dimensional) digital images. In recent years, this activity has become an established discipline in medical imaging. A method for surface representation of 3-D images (volumes) is presented in this paper. The procedure performs triangulation of the surface of the 3-D object and represents the result using a 3-D scene description language known as the virtual reality modeling language (VRML). The iterative procedure is implemented in C language on a SUN workstation.
