Abstract
Modern measurement equipment delivers more detailed data and faster data with each generation. These data can be used for different applications, one of them is doing real time display. Instead of saving all data during the measurements and analyze it afterwards, the data is displayed in real time and only especially selected parts of the data are saved for further work. Moving the screening part of the analysis to the human brain and pattern recognition avoids the saving of vast amounts of data and massive calculation power on computers afterwards and it dramatically improves the level of interaction with the measurement systems. This work starts first with a short look to the question what OCT is and how data is acquired. The different possibilities of volume rendering are presented in their basic ideas. Graphics hardware and algorithms are presented and discussed. Last the results of measurements taken by the system will be presented and discussed.
