Paper Abstract

This paper describes a 3D-image processing approach to generate a combination display of intracranial vessels and adjacent brain tissue surfaces in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The algorithm is based on the ray-tracing principle and may be regarded as a union of the techniques of surface integration and maximum intensity projection (MIP). Measurement methods and preprocessing steps fo acquisition of a flow-compensated vessel dataset and a T1-weighted tissue volume with isolated brain with equal partitioning are described. The method is intended as a tool for the optimization of neurosurgical planning. 1.
