Enhancing Depth Perception in Translucent Volumes

  title={Enhancing Depth Perception in Translucent Volumes},
  author={Marta Kersten and James Stewart and Nikolaus F. Troje and Randy E. Ellis},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics},
We present empirical studies that consider the effects of stereopsis and simulated aerial perspective on depth perception in translucent volumes. We consider a purely absorptive lighting model, in which light is not scattered or reflected, but is simply absorbed as it passes through the volume. A purely absorptive lighting model is used, for example, when rendering digitally reconstructed radiographs (DRRs), which are synthetic X-ray images reconstructed from CT volumes. Surgeons make use of… CONTINUE READING
