Paper Abstract

We have previously reported on a method for visualizing cardiovascular nuclear medicine tomographic perfusion studies which included: long and short axis slices, two-dimensional (2- D) polar maps, three-dimensional (3-D) surface models, and four-dimensional surface models. We have since validated the 3-D surface model in a prospective patient population, added the ability to generate 3-D models from any polar map, and added a panoramic display that allows two 3-D models to be compared side-by-side. This paper describes the methodologies involved in these enhancements.
