Medical 3D data acquisition devices are increasingly available and able to provide accurate spatial information for the human body. Even though nowadays hardware capabilities and rendering algorithms have improved to the point that 3D visualizations can be rapidly obtained from acquired data, 3D reconstructions are not routinely used in most hospitals. This is because physicians are traditionally trained to gather information from 2D image slices, and because 3D volumetric images displayed on traditional devices are often of questionable value because of ambiguities in their interpretations. Therefore, this standard provides routine visualization techniques for three-dimensional medical images, so that medical images can be visualized from routine process.This standard focuses on the demands arising when scientific results in the field of 3D medical visualization are applied for the construction of a software system. It is targeted to aid the clinical work of medical professionals. This standard includes visualization techniques by the automated medical shape detection and reconstruction of three-dimensional (3D) models from two-dimensional medical images. Also it contains texturing of three-dimensional medical data for the intuitive visualization.
