Paper Abstract

A sequence of two-dimensional image slices (such as obtained from computerized tomography) may be used to create three-dimensional visualizations of human anatomy. One limitation of three-dimensional representations from such data may be that the image resolution within each slice (typically 0.4 to 1.4 mm) is large com-pared to the size of features in the ana-tomy under study. Adjacent slices may be separated by even larger distances, typically from 1 to 10 mm. Many methods have been developed for interpolating between the coarsely sampled pixel values to generate a three-dimensional surface, with varying degrees of realism.
