Distance Field Visualization and 2D Abstraction of Vessel Tree Structures with on-the-fly Parameterization
Distance Field Visualization and 2D Abstraction of Vessel Tree Structures with on-the-fly Parameterization (The Eurographics Association, 2019)In this paper, we make contributions to the visualization of vascular structures. Based on skeletal input data, we provide a combined 2D and implicit 3D visualization of vasculature, that is parameterized on-the-fly for ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2019)Blood flow simulations play an important role for the understanding of vascular diseases, such as aneurysms. However, analysis of the resulting flow patterns, especially comparisons across patient groups, are challenging. ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2019)Depictions of molecular surfaces such as the Solvent Excluded Surface (SES) can provide crucial insight into functional molecular properties, such as the molecule's potential to react. The interactive visualization of ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2019)We present a novel abstract visualization for the binding sites of proteins. Binding sites play an essential role in enzymatic reactions and are, thus, often investigated in structural biology. They are typically located ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2019)In the Molecular Dynamics (MD) visualization literature, different approaches are utilized to study protein-lipid interactions (PLI) and protein-protein interaction (PPI) in decoupled contexts. However, the two types of ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2019)High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non invasive therapeutic method, which has been a subject of interest for the treatment of various kinds of tumors. Despite the numerous advantages, HIFU techniques do not reach ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2019)Three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound imaging and visualization is often used in medical diagnostics, especially in prenatal screening. Screening the development of the fetus is important to assess possible complications early ...
(The Eurographics Association, 2019)CFD simulations are an increasingly important method for the non-invasive analysis of risk factors for aneurysm rupture. Their robustness, however, has to be examined more thoroughly before clinical use is possible. We ...
InkVis: A High-Particle-Count Approach for Visualization of Phase-Contrast Magnetic Resonance Imaging Data (The Eurographics Association, 2019)Phase-Contrast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (PC-MRI) measures volumetric and time-varying blood flow data, unsurpassed in quality and completeness.
