Interactive volume cutting of medical data.Comput Biol Med. 2007 Aug; 37(8):1155-9.CB
Volume data cutting plays a crucial part in medical image probing, computer assisted diagnosis, virtual surgery, etc. Based on hardware-accelerated texture-based volume rendering algorithm, the paper proposes a method for volume cutting. With Boolean operations, the method is extended to multi-object clipping and can meet the needs of more complicated clipping applications. Due to hardware acceleration, proposed algorithms achieve interactive display rate and can be used in volume cutting applications such as surgery simulation and so on.
