Paper Abstract

SOFTVU is a collection of computer programs capable of performing several image manipulation tasks required to visualize and analyze multidimensional image data obtained from medical imaging scanners. In this paper we present some novel image segmentation, interpolation, and display techniques developed and implemented in the package. Our rule-based segmentation can automatically extract different structures of the brain from MR image data. The shape-based interpolation scheme presented here minimizes user involvement in interactive segmentation and enhances portrayal of dynamic as well as static objects. The rendering subsystem can render multiple objects with color and cut-away sections. The system as a whole provides efficient software solutions to several clinical image analysis tasks.
