Streamline Visualization of Diffusion Tensor Data Based on Triangle Strips [chapter]

Dorit Merhof, Markus Sonntag, Frank Enders, Christopher Nimsky, Peter Hastreiter, Günther Greiner
Bildverarbeitung für die Medizin 2006  
For the visualization of diffusion tensor imaging data, different approaches have been presented such as scalar metrics, glyphs or streamlines.  ...  However, the number of streamlines for a tracking of the whole brain or very dense tract systems may be immense, making a mesh-based tube visualization inefficient.  ...  Acknowledgments This work was supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft in the context of SFB 603, Project C9 and the Graduate Research Center "3D Image Analysis and Synthesis".  ...

Visualizing Uncertainty in HARDI Tractography Using Superquadric Streamtubes [article]

Vitalis Wiens, Lara Schlaffke, Tobias Schmidt-Wilcke, Thomas Schultz
2014 Eurographics Conference on Visualization  
Standard streamtubes for the visualization of diffusion MRI data are rendered either with a circular or with anelliptic cross section whose aspect ratio indicates the relative magnitudes of the medium  ...  As a secondcontribution, we apply our novel superquadric streamtubes to visualize uncertainty in the tracking direction ofHARDI tractography, which we represent using a novel propagation uncertainty tensor  ...  The diffusion tensor, a symmetric 3 × 3 matrix, is the simplest model that captures this data [BMLB94] , and streamtubes are one of the most widely used tools for visualizing it [VZKL06] .  ...

Flow field visualization using vector field perpendicular surfaces

Karljohan Lundin Palmerius, Matthew Cooper, Anders Ynnerman
2009 Proceedings of the 2009 Spring Conference on Computer Graphics - SCCG '09  
These surfaces are a perpendicular analogue to streamlines, with the vector data always being parallel to the normals of the surface.  ...  This paper introduces Vector Field Perpendicular Surfaces as a means to represent vector data with special focus on variations across the vectors in the field.  ...  When visualizing diffusion tensor data this might not produce noticeable artifacts, however the occurrence of helicity must be correctly handled in the generalization of this concept.  ...
