Paper Abstract

It is very important to locate the tumor for a patient, who has cancer in his brain. If he only gets X-CT or MRI pictures, the doctor does not know the size, shape location of the tumor and the relation between the tumor and other organs. This paper presents the formation of stereo images of cancer. On the basis of color code and color 3D reconstruction. The stereo images of tumor, brain and encephalic truncus are formed. The stereo image of cancer can be round on X, Y, Z-coordinates to show the shape from different directions. In order to show the location of tumor, stereo image of tumor and encephalic truncus are provided on different angles. The cross section pictures are also offered to indicate the relation of brain, tumor and encephalic truncus on cross sections. In this paper the calculating of areas, volume and the space between cancer and the side of the brain are also described.
