Integrating Volume Visualization Techniques Into Medical Applications

Stefan Bruckner, Peter Kohlmann, Armin Kanitsar, Meister Eduard Gröller

CONFERENCE PAPER: In Proceedings of ISBI 2008, pp. 820–823, 2008. DOI: 10.1109/ISBI.2008.4541122

Abstract

One of the main obstacles in integrating 3D volume visualization in the clinical workflow is the time-consuming process of adjusting parameters such as viewpoint, transfer functions, and clipping planes required to generate a diagnostically relevant image. Current applications therefore make scarce use of volume rendering and instead primarily employ 2D views generated through standard techniques such as multi-planar reconstruction (MPR). However, in many cases 3D renditions can supply additional useful information. This paper discusses ongoing work which aims to improve the integration of 3D visualization into the diagnostic workflow by automatically generating meaningful renditions based on minimal user interaction. A method for automatically generating 3D views for structures in 2D slices based on a single picking interaction is presented.
