Paper Abstract

Volume visualization encompasses an array of techniques which provide the mechanisms that make it possible to reveal and explore the inner or unseen structures of volumetric data and allow visual insight into opaque or complex datasets. Volume visualization is concerned with the tasks of representing, manipulating, and rendering volumetric data. This tutorial provided an overview of the technology, the nomenclature, and the techniques for these tasks, emphasizing algorithms and applications. The tutorial covered and compared different approaches in volume representation, volume synthesis, volume and surface viewing, volume shading, and biomedical applications of volume visualization.
