What is isosurfacing?

Isosurfacing is a visualization technique for extracting a surface from 3D volumetric data, such as a CT or MRI scan. The technique, first developed by researchers at GE called Marching Cubes,  essentially started the 3D medical visualization industry.

Image analysis is hard. To extract meaningful information to meet your analysis goals you often need to work with large, complex, multidimensional and multivariate data. I have found that the following methodology can be used to effectively design software to successfully analyze image data.

While DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) provides a necessary format for handling device connectivity, it could be improved by addressing the following concerns.

DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) provides a necessary format for handling device connectivity. Most importantly, it provides a means for:

A commonly occurring problem where two or more data sets must be aligned to one another for the purpose of comparison, blending, visualization, and analysis. Rotating, scaling, and translating the 2D or 3D data sets usually accomplish this so that the each correspond to one another based upon some specified error metric.
