Three-dimensional (3D) arrays of digital data representing spatial volumes arise in many scientific applications, such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) created by imaging a series of cross sections of human bodies in medical applications. In this article, a software system architecture, called DISCOVER (a Distributed Interactive Scientific COmputing and Visualization EnviRonment), which can take advantage of the power of parallel processing, is proposed and… CONTINUE READING
