3D CT of renal pathology: initial experience with cinematic rendering

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

3D computed tomography (CT) visualizations of volumetric data have become an important aspect of diagnostic imaging. The utility of 3D CT has been well described for the imaging of a number of renal pathologies. Recently, a new 3D visualization technique known as cinematic rendering (CR) has become available and provides photorealistic images derived from standard CT acquisitions by use of a complex global lighting model. Herein, we describe a number of normal variant and pathologic conditions of the kidney visualized with CR. We provide comparisons of findings with CR to traditional methods of 3D imaging and comment on the potential applications of this new method of 3D CT rendering.
