Effectively Visualizing the Spatial Structure of Cerebral Blood Vessels
March-April 2013 (vol. 15 no. 2)
pp. 41-46
Yan-Lin Luo, Beijing Normal University and the Institute of Software of the Chinese Academy of Sciences
Three-dimensional visualizations of cerebral vessel structures are helpful for diagnosing diseases. However, when viewing several overlapping cerebral vessels using traditional ray casting, it's difficult to decide clear depth ordering. As a solution, distance color blending and stereoscopic depth enhancement are combined with CUDA-based pre-integrated volume rendering and its advanced transfer function for improved depth perception.
