Paper Abstract

Three-dimensional volume reconstruction has gained great popularity as a powerful technique for the visualization of volume datasets such as those obtained from X-ray, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging in recent years. Local features play important part in the classification process for a variety of medical image analysis, computer-aided diagnosis, and three-dimensional reconstruction and visualization applications. By using high-order local statistic features detected by local block based moments, such as flat, round, elongated shapes, together with the local spectral histogram of textures, to act as classification criteria, a three-dimensional medical reconstruction method is proposed in this paper. A volume splatting algorithm by using the proposed classification method is implemented and relatively high-quality rendering results can be obtained when the proposed method is applied in medical reconstructions.
