Model-Based Visualization for Intervention Planning

Bernhard Preim
Computer support for intervention planning is often a two-stage process: In a first stage, the relevant segmentation target structures are identified and delineated. In a second stage, image analysis results are employed for the actual planning process. In the first stage, model-based segmentation techniques are often used to reduce the interaction effort and increase the reproducibility. There is a similar argument to employ model-based techniques for the visualization as well. With increasingly more visualization options,...
