1995 Medical Imaging 1995: Image Display  
In cardiothoracic surgical planning experiment we found the ability to interactively control and view 3D direct volume visualizations resulted in improvements in surgical plans and in the surgeon's confidence  ...  We compared different rendering methods (projection, maximum intensity projection, opacity blended, and opacity combined with gradient blended) and chose opacity blending as the most effective for both  ...  The controls can either be physical controls like joysticks or wands, or virtual controls like sliders and buttons displayed on the computer screen that are operated by a device like a computer mouse.  ...

Passive real-world interface props for neurosurgical visualization

Ken Hinckley, Randy Pausch, John C. Goble, Neal F. Kassell
1994 Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human factors in computing systems celebrating interdependence - CHI '94  
A hand-held wand is seen through a half-silvered mirror, upon which the computer graphics are projected. A white spot on the wand itself acts as a real-world cursor.  ...  A linear trajectory consists of a target point inside the brain and a vector to that point. The trajectory prop indicates the vector by its orientation relative to the head prop.  ...
