Abstract
Interactive multimodality 4D volume rendering of cardiac images is challenging due to several factors. Animated rendering of fused volumes with multiple lookup tables (LUT) and interactive adjustments of relative volume positions and orientations must be performed in real time. In addition it is difficult to visualize the myocardium separated from the surrounding tissue on some modalities, such as MRI. In this work we propose to use software techniques combined with hardware capabilities of modern consumer video cards for real-time visualization of time-varying multimodality fused cardiac volumes for diagnostic purposes.
