Visualization Methods for Volumetric Medical Datasets

Duration 1997 - 2000
Contact Schmalstieg Dieter


Modern radiological measurement techniques like CT, MR, US or PET offers the possibility to obtain 3D-information of the interiour of the human body without invasive operation.

The drawback of these measurement techniques is the difficulty for the user to visualize and navigate through the gathered volumetric datasets. We work on three main aspects to get an comprehensive and handy toolkit for physicians to make their work as easy as possible. These aspects are an efficient tool for selecting and handle 3D datasets (like DICOM image series). Next is an automatic navigation routine to let someone fly through organs. And the third is a comparison of different volume visualization techniques on their achieved quality and performance.
