Paper Abstract

Visualization and reconstruction of blood vessel from standard medical datasets play an important role in many clinical situations. This paper presents a survey on the visualization and reconstruction of vascular structures. Firstly, the visualization techniques of vasculatures are introduced, which includes volume rendering and surface rendering of vasculatures. Then, we focus on the reconstruction techniques of vascular structures, which can be classified into two categories: explicit reconstruction and implicit reconstruction of vascular structures. With reconstructed vascular geometry, it is quite easy to produce smooth visualization of vessel surfaces. In addition, finding the accurate geometric representation of vascular structures is crucial in developing computer aided vascular surgery systems.
