Abstract


Volume rendering is an important technique for medical imaging where many modalities produce three-dimensional (3D) images. An appropriate three-dimensional rendering leads to a better perception of the image content. A major problem is exchangeability: Usually, only two-dimensional, static snapshots of a volume-rendered scene can be distributed electronically. The Portable Document Format (PDF) provides the possibility to embed 3D objects. With suitable reading software, these objects can be displayed interactively. This article presents an open-source implementation of a software tool that is based on the MeVisLab imaging framework and that can convert volume images into model files which can be embedded into PDF files to create a virtual volume rendering.
