Abstract
We present a computational stereoscopic observer approach inspired by the mechanisms of stereopsis in human vision that makes decisions based on a set of image pairs. Our stereo observer is constrained to a left and a right image generated using a visualization operator (ray tracing) to render simulated voxel datasets. We present the formulation of the observer based on model observer theory and discuss issues regarding simulated data generation and processing for this approach. The applicability of this observer extends to stereoscopic displays in the areas of entertainment, industrial, and medical imaging applications.
