3D CT cinematic rendering of the spleen

Potential role in problem solving

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

Cinematic rendering (CR) is a new 3D visualization methodology for volumetric diagnostic imaging including computed tomography (CT) datasets composed of isotropic voxels. CR produces photorealistic images with enhanced detail relative to other 3D visualization methods and realistic shadowing. In this review, we provide a number of examples of splenic pathology visualized with CR including conditions affecting the splenic vasculature, neoplasms, and accessory spleens. These examples are compared to 2D CT and traditional 3D CT techniques and the potential advantages of CR are highlighted. CR displays textural changes in the splenic parenchyma to particular advantage, and a portion of this review will be devoted to examples of how textural features can help distinguish intrapancreatic accessory spleens from neuroendocrine tumors.
