Abstract

We describe a dynamic volume-visualization tool for simulating endoscopic exploration. A high-resolution 3D radiographic image of the relevant anatomy is loaded into a workstation-based interactive system. The user then 'navigates' through the anatomy using the 3D image as a virtual environment. The interactive system features an exact dynamic real-time volume-rendering engine and supplementary reference views.
