Abstract

Several surface and volume rendering techniques are compared using nuclear medicine data including several new methods developed by the authors specifically for scintigraphic data. The techniques examined are summed projection, thresholded projection, threshold-based surface illumination, volumetric compositing, maximum-activity projection, sun-weighted maximum-activity projection, and variable attenuation. The advantages and disadvantages of each method are discussed in relation to the goals of three-dimensional display, which are defined herein. Selected images are shown to illustrate the usefulness of the methods.
