Paper Abstract

Algorithms for interactive display and measurement of three-dimensional (3D) surface anatomy have been developed and implemented on a PC-based system with a high-speed display architecture. Surfaces are extracted automatically from two-dimensional cross-sectional images and rendered as three-dimensional shaded-surface images at a series of user-specified viewing angles. Surface images are displayed interactively from any of the precomputed views, producing the effect of arbitrary tilt and rotation of the 3D anatomy. Dimensional measurements are obtained in real time through selection of visible surface points in one or more views. The techniques described provide an interactive framework for both visualization and quantitation of 3D surface anatomy.
