Fast Cutting Operations on Three Dimensional Volume Datasets

M. W. Jones and M. Chen


This paper is concerned with high quality volume visualisation with additional emphasis on real time cutting operations for displaying surface interiors. In many applications, it is necessary for a user to interactively perform cutting operations on a volume dataset in order to see different parts of the data. A method for implementing such operations, together with a direct surface rendering algorithm, has heen developed and results have demonstrated its efficiency in comparison with existing methods.
