3D Visualization of Medical Image Data Employing 2D Histograms

Stefan Wesarg, Matthias Kirschner
2009 2009 Second International Conference in Visualisation  
Transfer functions (TF) are a means for improving the visualization of 3D medical image data. If in addition to intensity another property is employed, two-dimensional TFs can be specified.  ...  For this, 2D histograms are helpful. In this work we investigate how the property feature size can be used for the definition of 2D TFs and the visualization of medical image data.  ...  An opacity TF is automatically defined based on the gradient magnitude value, the color of each cluster is randomly assigned and also used for the volume rendering.  ...

Gradient magnitude vs. feature size

S. Wesarg, M. Kirschner
2009 Computer Graphics International on - CGI '09  
Gradient magnitude is an additional property that has been used predominantly for defining TFs based on 2D histograms. Recently, feature size has been introduced as an alternative.  ...  By giving visualization examples for well-known volume data sets we conclude that employing feature size for TF specification is more intuitive than gradient magnitude based approaches.  ...  Table 1 : 1 The parameters used in this work for defining the transfer functions for opacity and color.  ...
