[Fast volume rendering of echocardiogram with shear-warp algorithm].Sheng Wu Yi Xue Gong Cheng Xue Za Zhi. 2004 Apr; 21(2):215-8.SW
Shear-warp is a volume rendering technology based on object-order. It has the characteristics of high speed and high image quality by comparison with the conventional visualization technology. The authors introduced the principle of this algorithm and applied it to the visualization of 3-D data obtained by interpolating rotary scanning echocardiogram. The 3-D reconstruction of the echocardiogram was efficiently completed with high image quality. This algorithm has a prospective application in medical image visualization.
