Description:Volumetric Image Visualization Environment
Abstract:The grid-enabled Volumetric Image Visualization Environment (VIVE) is an interactive analysis tool for 3D medical images, facilitating diagnosis, surgical planning, therapy evaluation, and remote 3D examination. It improves understanding of complex anatomies by providing an interactive three-dimensional environment with simple Web-based user interface. The lightweight Java/VRML client enables user interaction and 3D rendering within a Web browser. The user interacts with the visualization server running on the grid through the specialized portal responsible for job submission and communication with server jobs. The grid provides computing and storage resources, as well as access methods required for volumetric data processing.
