A computer-aided three-dimensional reconstruction of brain structures using high level computer graphics



A computer-aided three-dimensional reconstruction of brain structures using high level computer graphics



International Journal of Bio-Medical Computing 20(4): 289-302



This paper describes how line drawings and continuous tone shaded images of a three-dimensional solid model of a brain structure are generated using a powerful general purpose computer graphics package. The model is built from a series of serial sections. We developed a software interface to convert the data entered by a section oriented way into a brain structure oriented file. We point out particularly the modular approach which consists of separating the tasks on small microcomputers or on bigger machines according to their computing cost. An example of a thalamic structure in a stereotaxic referential is presented.
