Paper Abstract

The development of medical imaging modalities such as X-ray Computer Tomography (C.T.) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (M.R.I.) have made possible the availability of geometrically accurate three dimensional data of the human anatomy. However, these data are obtained in the form of a series of slices or in a three dimensional scalar field. Obviously, the human visual perception process is not at all adapted to this type of abstract objects as opposed to the usual world which consists of opaque surfaces occulting each other.
