Paper Abstract

The Cube system is a 3D graphics system centered around a large cubic frame-buffer of voxels with several processors that input, manipulate, view, and render both medical and synthetic 3D images. A software prototype has been integrated on a Sun workstation with a 6D Polhemus input device. The physician interacts directly with the medical images, the synthetic objects, and their transformations, employing inherent 3D interaction tools. The system supports the reconstruction, manipulation, analysis, and display of 3D volumetric medical images. The Cube medical system is applicable to diagnostic, planning, therapeutic, surgical, instructional, and research purposes. A case study of a CT reconstruction and display of the cervical region is presented.
