Abstract / Description:Diffusion tensor imaging is a magnetic resonance imaging method
which has gained increasing importance in neuroscience and especially in
neurosurgery. It acquires diffusion properties represented by a symmetric 2nd
order tensor for each voxel in the gathered dataset. From the medical point of
view, the data is of special
interest due to different diffusion characteristics of varying brain tissue
allowing conclusions about the underlying structures such as white matter
tracts. An obvious way to visualize this data is
to focus on the anisotropic areas using the major eigenvector for
tractography and rendering lines for visualization of the simulation results.
Our approach extends this technique to avoid line representation since lines
lead to very complex illustrations and furthermore
are mistakable. Instead, we generate surfaces wrapping bundles of
lines. Thereby, a more intuitive representation of different tracts is
achieved.
