Abstract
Three-dimensional image reconstruction by volume rendering has two problems: time-consuming and low precision. During the diagnosis procedure, some detailed organ tissue is the interest to doctors, so the reconstructed two-dimensional images are pre-processed before three-dimensional reconstruction including disturbance removing and precise segmentation, to obtain Region-Of-Interest (ROI) based on which three-dimensional reconstruction carries through, that can decrease the complexity of time and space. By this, Live Wire segmentation algorithm model for medical image is improved to gain exact edge coordinate for the image segmentation with interior details by improved filling algorithm. Segmented images with object details only are regarded as input to realize volume rendering by ray casting tracking algorithm. Because the needless organs have been filtered, the disturbance on interested objects for doctors is reduced. Meanwhile, generally speaking, these needed organs left are less proportion in images. So it reduces data amount of volume rendering, and improves the speed of three-dimensional reconstruction.
