Medical visualization has been a long way down the road from the first by today's standard crude images to the current sophisticated rendering results. However, for a successful application of visualization, we need to look at the whole visual computing pipeline, which includes image processing, visualization, interaction, and in addition into perceptual issues of visual computing. In my talk, I will discuss certain aspects of this pipeline. Starting from early image filtering after image… 


EndoView: A Phantom Study of a Tracked Virtual Bronchoscopy
This work extends a previous image based rendering system for virtual bronchoscopy to include tracking of a rigid or flexible endoscope and finding one's way in the tracheal tree by displaying the endoscope’s position in a top-view map of thetrachea.
Volumetric high dynamic range windowing for better data representation
With this method, the contrast of mapped 8 bit volume datasets is significantly enhanced, in particular if the imaging modality allows for a high tissue differentiation (eg., MRI) and it also allows better and easier segmentation and classification.
HDR VolVis: high dynamic range volume visualization
An interactive high dynamic range volume visualization framework (HDR VolVis) for visualizing volumetric data with both high spatial and intensity resolutions and proposes a novel transfer function specification interface with nonlinear magnification of the density range and logarithmic scaling of the color/opacity range.
Interactive time-dependent tone mapping using programmable graphics hardware
It is shown that it is possible to cleanly map a state-of-the-art tone mapping algorithm to the pixel processor, which allows an interactive application to achieve higher levels of realism by rendering with physically based, unclamped lighting values and high dynamic range texture maps.
The CG Tutorial: The Definitive Guide to Programmable Real-Time Graphics
This book is a tutorial to teach you how to write Cg, the premier language for programmable graphics hardware, and many of the programmable shading techniques that are employed so successfully in offline rendering can enter the realm of real-time graphics.
Filtering Video Volumes Using the Graphics Hardware
A hardware friendly streaming concept has been implemented to allow the processing of video sequences of arbitrary length and the clear advantage of time-based filtering compared to frame-by-frame filtering is presented.
A Generic Software Framework for the GPU Volume Rendering Pipeline
This paper presents an extendable, simple, and efcient software framework that implements the GPU-based volume rendering pipeline by using object-oriented design patterns, layers, and the concept of a shared application state.
Recovering high dynamic range radiance maps from photographs
This work discusses how this work is applicable in many areas of computer graphics involving digitized photographs, including image-based modeling, image compositing, and image processing, and demonstrates a few applications of having high dynamic range radiance maps.
A Survey of General-Purpose Computation on Graphics Hardware
The techniques used in mapping general-purpose computation to graphics hardware will be generally useful for researchers who plan to develop the next generation of GPGPU algorithms and techniques.
Simulation of cloud dynamics on graphics hardware
A physically-based, visually-realistic interactive cloud simulation that exploits the relatively slow evolution of clouds in calm skies to enable interactive visualization of the simulation and implements both simulations -- dynamic and radiometric -- entirely on programmable floating-point graphics hardware.
