Based on the nature of the processing tools required to fulfill biomedical imaging objectives, three components may be identified in a complete image analysis system: visualization, manipulation, and analysis. Visualization refers to processes which enable us to see and comprehend structure information captured in the image data in its true form and shape so as to help understand the underlying physical phenomenon. Manipulation refers to processes which allow us to interactively alter structure information with a view to understanding how the functionality of the physical phenomenon may be modified. Analysis refers to processes which generate quantitative descriptions of the structures with a view to quantify the functionality of the phenomenon being studied. The phrase 3D imaging may be used to collectively denote these processes. This tutorial covered systematically the fundamental principles underlying 3D imaging, namely multidimensional, multimodal image data visualization, manipulation, and analysis. The tutorial included on-line demonstrations of the imaging operations on a workstation.
