Volumetric image processing is a new approach to generating simulated three-dimensional images from transaxial CT data. The major advantages compared to conventional surface-rendering 3D technique include: preservation of every pixel of CT data for increased accuracy of rendered image; tissue layer translucency allowing appreciation of multiple tissue layers on each image; simulation of real-time rotation in varying axes for optimal appreciation of abnormalities; and a high-speed, high-capacity computer setup which generates high-quality images rapidly, giving the system sufficient flexibility for these complicated functions while remaining user friendly and fast.
