Medicine has increasingly come to rely upon digital imaging technologies such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) which sample tissue characteristics at discrete points over a three dimensional volume. In this technology, computer graphics has found a fertile field for applying volume reconstruction algorithms to produce images of selected anatomical structures.
This National Science Foundation funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) site will conduct research into rendering large anatomical data sets and associated problems. In particular we will work with the Visible Human Project (TM) data set from the National Library of Medicine.
NOTE: UW-La Crosse operated this REU program during the summers of 1997 and 1998. This page is maintained as a record of work done during those summers.
