    The purpose of this work is to investigate, and improve, the feasibility of advanced Region Of Interest (ROI) selection schemes in clinical volume rendering. In particular, this work implements and evaluates an Automated ...
  • Visibility-Driven Processing of Streaming Volume Data 

    Solteszova, Veronika; Birkeland, Asmund; Viola, Ivan; Bruckner, Stefan (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    In real-time volume data acquisition, such as 4D ultrasound, the raw data is challenging to visualize directly without additional processing. Noise removal and feature detection are common operations, but many methods are ...
  • Evaluation of Transfer Function Methods in Direct Volume Rendering of the Blood Vessel Lumen 

    Läthén, Gunnar; Lindholm, Stefan; Lenz, Reiner; Borga, Magnus (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Visualization of contrast enhanced blood vessels in CT angiography data presents a challenge due to varying concentration of the contrast agent. The purpose of this work is to evaluate the correctness (effectiveness) in ...
  • Visual and Quantitative Analysis of Higher Order Arborization Overlaps for Neural Circuit Research

  • Membrane Mapping: Combining Mesoscopic and Molecular Cell Visualization 

    Waltemate, Thomas; Sommer, Björn; Botsch, Mario (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
    Three-dimensional cell visualization is an important topic in today's cytology-affiliated community. Cell illustrations and animations are used for scientific as well as for educational purposes. Unfortunately, there exist ...
  • Interactive Labeling of Toponome Data 

    Oeltze-Jafra, Steffen; Pieper, Franz; Hillert, Reyk; Preim, Bernhard; Schubert, Walter (The Eurographics Association, 2014)
