Display, Volume Rendering, and Surfaces

2-D and 3-D medical image display, 3-D surface generation, and volume rendering

Medical Imaging Toolbox™ provides tools to visualize 2-D and 3-D medical image data. Interactively display medical images in the Medical Image Labeler app, which automatically orients images in the anterior/posterior, left/right, and inferior/superior directions. Use volume rendering to visualize intensity volumes in 3-D using display presets or customized display settings. You can also view label data as volumetric overlays on grayscale intensity volumes. Outside the app, you can generate and render surfaces for efficient display or 3-D printing or modeling applications.
