`Volume imaging' is the process of visualizing image data that exists on a grid in three- dimensions: at every point in the volume, a gray-level or color value is known. These image volumes usually result from building a `stack' from a sequence of cross-sectional views, such as those from CT, MRI, and confocal imaging. Stereoscopic viewing is a very effective way of viewing and analyzing these volumes. The stereo pair is constructed using ray projections. My objectives for this paper are three-fold: (1) To present a new way to view stereo images on a PC computer. (2) To demonstrate the ease-of-use and high image quality of the system using sample images from confocal microscopy. (3) To present preliminary results for projection image processing on a PC from CT and MRI image stacks.
