Story Telling Aspects in Medical Applications

  title={Story Telling Aspects in Medical Applications},
  author={Michael Wohlfart},
Although the use of images as well as movies has proven very valuable for presentation purposes in volume visualization, these methods still lack a certain feature, that has become state-of-the-art in other visualization areas, namely interactivity. Giving the consumers of a presentation more interactive freedom would allow them to further investigate the presented visualizations as well as to draw their own conclusions. The approach that we suggest in this paper introduces storytelling to… 

Figures from this paper

Towards Narrative Medical Visualization
This paper derived a general template for the narrative medical visualization of diseases, and applying this template to three diseases selected to span bone, vascular, and organ system, discusses how narrative techniques can support visual communication and facilitate understanding of medical data.
Storytelling and Visualization: An Extended Survey
This paper presents a survey of storytelling literature in visualization and presents an overview of the common and important elements in storytelling visualization, as well as a novel classification of the literature on storytelling in visualization.

Improving Provenance Data Interaction for Visual Storytelling in Medical Imaging Data Exploration
It is illustrated how the interaction with provenance data displayed in a graph can be improved in order to facilitate authoring and the creation process of visual data stories.
Navigable Videos for Presenting Scientific Data on Affordable Head-Mounted Displays
Two tools are developed that allow domain scientists to generate a set of connected, 360° video paths for traversing between dimensional keyframes in the dataset and a corresponding navigational interface is a video selection and playback tool that can be paired with a low-cost HMD to enable an interactive, non-linear, storytelling experience.
Navigable videos for presenting scientific data on head-mounted displays
The authoring tool and navigational interface provide scientists an immersive medium to visually present their research to the intended audience--spanning from students to colleagues--on affordable virtual reality headsets.
Game-y information graphics
Preliminary results based on a real world deployment of the graphics on a newspaper website suggest that the trivia game information graphic engendered increased exploration of the data space by users as compared to the regular version of the graphic.


VolumeShop: an interactive system for direct volume illustration
A novel concept for direct multi-object volume visualization which allows control of the appearance of inter-penetrating objects via two-dimensional transfer functions is introduced and a unifying approach to efficiently integrate many non-photorealistic rendering models is presented.
Generalizing Focus+Context Visualization
A generalized definition of focus+context visualization is presented which extends its applicability also to scientific visualization and shows how different graphics resources such as space, opacity, color, etc., can be used to visually discriminate between data subsets in focus and their respective context.
Importance-Driven Expressive Visualization
The applicability of importance-driven visualization is demonstrated on several examples from medical diagnostics scenarios, flow visualization, and interactive illustrative visualization.
What storytelling can do for information visualization
The ancient art of storytelling and its adaptation in film and video can now be used to efficiently convey information in the authors' increasingly computerized world.
Interactive volume illustration and feature halos
A new interactive volume illustration system (IVIS) that harnesses the power of programmable graphics processors, and includes a novel approach for feature halo enhancement, which is a powerful tool for exploration and analysis of volumetric datasets.
Illustrative Context-Preserving Volume Rendering
A new model for volume rendering is presented, inspired by techniques from illustration that provides a means of interactively inspecting the interior of a volumetric data set in a feature-driven way which retains context information.

Due to the memory-efficiency of the data representation and the implementation in Java, RTVR can be used to provide volume viewing facilities over low-bandwidth networks, with almost full control over rendering and visualization mapping parameters for the user.
Interactive volume rendering
This paper discusses an approach for volume rendering in which interactive speed is achieved through a parallelizable forward mapping algorithm, successive refinement, table driven mappings for shading and filtering, and the avoidance of complex machine classification of the data.
Fast volume segmentation with simultaneous visualization using programmable graphics hardware
This algorithm is unique in that it utilizes sophisticated graphics hardware functionality to enable fast segmentation and interactive visualization and circumvents the need to transfer data across the system bus, allowing for faster visualization and interaction.
