Paper Abstract

We discuss computer techniques fordisplaying three-dimensional (3D) data using a two-dimensional (2D) display screen, with special emphasis on the representation of the data. Since our expertise is in medical imaging, we restrict our attention to techniques that have been found useful in that area. The first section gives a classification of methods that have appeared in the literature. The remaining two sections deal with specific topics which are of current interest to us: one with techniques of fast display with hidden surface removal and the other with a new approach to the representation and manipulation of three-dimensional scenes.
