Paper Abstract

This paper describes techniques to visualize aneurysms in three dimensions from Magnetic Resonance Angiographic data sets to aid surgeons and radiologists in surgical planning and treatment of cerebrovascular (brain) aneurysms. Maximum Intensity Projection using ray tracing is implemented to highlight the aneurysm zones in 2d. Segmentation Via Voxel Connectivity (SVVC) supports the recognition of the blood vessels and aneurysms and presents them in 3d.
