Choosing a visualization method that most easily and accurately conveys the meaning of data is not always a complex three-dimensional image. Sometimes, insightful meaning can most easily be conveyed by a simple graph and often interaction through these simple interfaces can greatly increase the understanding of complex data.
Bring new life to your three-dimensional volumetric data by viewing it in its natural form. Gain contextual insight by viewing transparent blends of your complex data. Data that typically benefits from volumetric methods are magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), PET, etc.
When speed is more important than visual accuracy, real-time graphics provide supreme interactivity with the user. These methods are generally used for previewing large or complex data or can simply be the end product when speed is the only concern, such as for high-speed three-dimensional games.
