Abstract

This paper describes ongoing research concerning interactive volume visualization coupled with tools for volumetric analysis. To establish an easy touse application, the three-dimensional-visualization has been embedded in a state of the art teleradiology system, where additional functionality is often desired beyond basic image transfer and management. Major clinical requirements for deriving spatial measures are covered by the tools, in orderto realize extended diagnosis support and therapy planning. Introducing a general plug-in mechanism, this work exemplarily describes the useful extension of an approved application. Interactive visualization was achieved by a hybrid approach taking advantage of both the precise volume visualizationbased on the Heidelberg raytracing model and the graphics acceleration capabilities of modern workstations. Several tools for volumetric analysis extend the three-dimensional-viewing. They are controlled by adequate input devices to select locations in the data volume, measure anatomical structuresor initiate a segmentation process. Moreover, a haptic interface can be connected to provide a more realistic feedback while navigating within the three-dimensional-reconstruction. The work is closely related to research in the field of heart, liver and head surgery. In cooperation with our medicalpartners the development of tools as presented facilitates the integrationof image analysis into the clinical routine. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd.
