Paper Abstract

Three-dimensional-VIEWNIX is a data-, machine-, and application-independent software system, developed and maintained on an ongoing basis by the Medical Imaging Processing Group. It is aimed at serving the needs of biomedical visualization researchers as well as biomedical end users. Three-dimensional-VIEWNIX is not designed around a fixed methodology or a set of methods packaged in a fixed fashion for a fixed application. Instead, we have identified and incorporated in 3DVIEWNIX a set of basic imaging transforms that are required in most visualization, manipulation, and analysis methods. In addition to visualization, it incorporates a variety of multidimensional structure manipulation and analysis methods. We have tried to make its design as much as possible image-dimensionality- independent to make it just as convenient to process 2D and 3D data as it is to process 4D data. It is distributed with source code in an open fashion. A single source code version is installed on a variety of computing platforms. It is currently in use worldwide.
