Abstract

A novel software was proposed that enabled real-time,high quality volume rendering of medical image data sets on standard desktop and laptop computer systems, taking advantage of the sophisticated hardware required for the latest generation of graphics-intensive computer games. The goal is to provide quantitative, objective, and reliable assessments to help improve the accuracy and utility of modern medical imaging. The resulting software is called Resolution RD that employs the advances in graphical processing unit (GPU) power Modern GPUs also enable the development of many general-purpose algorithms to take advantage of their floating-point processing capabilities. Clinicians and researchers need to visualize an image data set from several viewing angles with a high quality, clear view of specific internal structures and organs. Users can manipulate the lens, moving it throughput the data set in 3-D while changing its size and the magnification.
