<p>It is suggested that ultrasound data acquisition will play an increasing role in the future of medical imaging. Unlike magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computerized tomography (CT), ultrasound offers interactive visualization of underlying anatomy in real time. Additionally, ultrasound equipment costs far less and does not use ionizing radiation or require specialized facilities. The different methods for multidimensional medical imaging and scientific visualization are reviewed. Several volume visualization algorithms are discussed. They are multiplexer slicing, surface fitting, volume rendering, data classification, and viewing and shading. Three-dimensional ultrasound data display methods are also discussed.</p>
