The winner of the 2010 IEEE Visualization Contest was a system that combines traditional and novel visualization techniques to help neurosurgeons plan brain tumor resections. A set of multimodal 2D and 3D views conveys the relation between the lesion and the various structures at risk and depicts data uncertainty. To facilitate efficient interaction while providing a comprehensible visualization, the system links all views. It also lets surgeons both define access paths by clicking in the 3D views and perform 2D and 3D distance measurements. The Web extra is a video demonstrating an interactive system for planning brain tumor resections.
