Virtual reality environments provide highly interactive, natural control of the visualization process, significantly enhancing the scientific value of the data produced by medical imaging systems. Due to the computational and real time display update requirements of virtual reality interjiaces, the complexity of organ and tissue sulfaces which can be displayed is limited. In this paper, we present two new algorithms for the production of anatomic surface models containing a pre-specified number… CONTINUE READING
