Abstract
Aiming at detail enhancement in volume rendering, a new volume illumination model, called Composed Scattering Model (CSM), is presented. In order to enhance different details in data, scattering intensity is decomposed into volume scattering intensity and surface scattering intensity, and composed with boundary detection operators. CSM can generate images containing more details than current volume rendering models. This model has been applied to the direct volume rendering of 3D data sets obtained by CT and MRI. The resultant images show not only rich details but also clear boundary surfaces. CSM is demonstrated as an accurate volume rendering model suited for detail enhancement in volume data set.
