MedX3D: standards enabled desktop medical 3D.

Author information

The Web3D Consortium, USA.


This paper reports on the work of the Web3D Consortium's Medical Working Group to specify and implement MedX3D -- an extension to the X3D standard that will support advanced medical visualization functionality and medical data exchange. This initiative covers volume rendering, ontology support, and data import/export, for standalone applications and web-based plug-ins. It is our hypothesis that such a 3D medical standard will provide better access to data, and enable improvements in medical care.
