Fast Visualization, Manipulation, and Analysis of Binary Volumetric Objects
November/December 1991 (vol. 11 no. 6)
pp. 53-62

A set of algorithms for interactive visualization, manipulation, and measurement of large 3-D objects on general-purpose workstations is described. They are based on a method of representing digital structures called a semiboundary. This data structure stores boundary and interior information. The use of these algorithms for visualizing medical data is addressed. Examples of their use are given.
