Simplifying Medical Visualization through Sparse Interaction and Reformation

Speaker:  Eduard Gröller – Vienna, Austria
Topic(s):  Graphics and Computer-Aided Design


Interpreting and interacting with 3D medical visualizations can pose significant cognitive challenges. In this talk we will discuss several approaches to facilitate 3D manipulations through knowledge-assisted sparse interactions. As an example the medical expert is simply picking positions within 2D slices while the system automatically derives expressive 3D views and parameters. The complex shape of 3D organs makes an evaluation and comparison quite difficult. Reformations of these structures (e.g., colon, vessels, ventricles of the heart) support standardized depictions and investigations. Several examples like colon unfolding, curved-planar reformations, volumetric bull's eye plots, curvicircular feature aggregation will be shortly presented.
