Paper Abstract

This paper presents a system for display-ing three-dimensional images of human brain structure by reconstructing them from CT image sequences. Functions of the system include : reslicing (pro-ducing cross-sectional images along an arbitrary plane); generation of 3D shaded surfaces of the skull, ventricle and disease lesions (hematoma and tumor etc.), windowing, and translucent display of the skull. All these functions can be combined in an arbitrary way to generate complicated 3D images. The system is expected to be useful especially for surgical planning and education in medicine.
