We present an interactive virtual colon navigation system on a PDA that is a client-server system over a wireless network. For improving the quality of the rendering results on the PDA, the overall rendering speed, and the user interactivity, we propose three novel methods and adapt a GPU-based direct volume rendering technique. Using these proposed methods, our system can support approximately a two times faster navigation speed and 17 percent better PSNR than previous remote visualization… 
Volume Rendering Strategies on Mobile Devices
TLDR
This paper reviews the suitability of some existing direct volume rendering methods, and proposes a novel approach that takes advantage of the graphics capabilities of modern OpenGL ES 2.0 enabled devices.
Gradient Octrees: A New Scheme for Remote Interactive Exploration of Volume Models
TLDR
This paper presents a transfer function-aware scheme for the remote interactive inspection of volume models in client-server architectures with the objectives of supporting multi-resolution, avoiding gradient computations in the client device and sending a very limited amount of information through the network.
Interactive visualization of medical volume models in mobile devices
TLDR
A transfer function-aware compression and interaction scheme, for client-server architectures with visualization on standard mobile devices, based on a local wavelet transformation, together with a bricking scheme that supports interactive inspection and levels of detail in the mobile device client.
High Resolution Medical 3D Data Sets on Mobile Devices and WebGL
TLDR
This paper proposes a software architecture and a novel texture storage technique that overcome texture limitations in 3D graphics applications and allows existing direct volume rendering techniques based on 3D textures to be adapted to mobile devices and WebGL.
A Hybrid Rendering Technique to Navigate in Large Terrains Using Mobile Devices
TLDR

Remote volume rendering pipeline for mHealth applications
TLDR
A novel remote volume rendering pipeline for medical visualization targeted for mHealth (mobile health) applications is introduced, where the entirety of the data resides on a remote server where the image is rendered and then streamed to the client mobile device.
A scalable architecture for 3D map navigation on mobile devices
TLDR
This paper has developed a hybrid adaptive streaming and rendering method that distributes the 3D map rendering task between the mobile clients and a remote server and achieves a great scalability and performance even when using low-end hardware.

Volume rendering based interactive navigation within the human colon
TLDR
This work presents an interactive navigation system for virtual colonoscopy, which is based solely on high performance volume rendering that exploits distance information stored in the potential field of the camera control model, and is parallelized on a multiprocessor.
Virtual voyage: interactive navigation in the human colon
TLDR
This work presents an interactive virtual colonoscopy method, which uses a physicallybased camera control model and a hardware-assisted visibility algorithm that culls invisible regions based on their visibility through a chain of portals, thus providing interactive rendering speed.
Virtual colonoscopy
TLDR
Virtual colonoscopy is a fast, noninvasive, highly accurate, cost-effective method for mass screening of colon polyps and is patient friendly since the patient undergoes less rigorous preparation prior to the procedure.
Combining local and remote visualization techniques for interactive volume rendering in medical applications
TLDR
A system which uniquely combines local desktop computers and remote high-end graphics hardware to exploit the standard visualization capabilities to a maximum which are available in the clinical environment is presented.
Remote line rendering for mobile devices
TLDR
This work presents an alternative method to the image-based approach by splitting the rendering process between client and server transfering couple of 2D line primitives over the network, which are rendered locally by the mobile device.
A solution for displaying medical data models on mobile devices
TLDR
A distributed architecture is proposed where a remote rendering server is able to manage complex models and to code a MPEG stream to be sent to the client; the user can visualize and analyze interactively the model by roto-translation commands.
