Course Assignment 2 - Multimodal Rendering
by Johannes Kehrer, Springsemester 2008
Several modalities of a Monkey head datasets are combined in order to describe the anatomy of soft tissue (MRI), hard tissue (CT), and metabolism (PET). The rendering plugin from Course Assignment 1 containing cool-to-warm shading, contour rendering, and illustrative transparency has been extended. The skull (CT data) is rendered using cool-to-warm and contour rendering.
- MRI or PET data is shown only in regions with high brain activity (first hit on PET data).
- In order to deal with occlusion, the skull (CT data) is removed according to the color when brain data is occluded.
- Using this approach, dark contours (context) can be preserved, while light materials are removed.
