Interventional treatment becomes increasingly popular since this technique means substantially less trauma for the patient. In this paper, we focus on providing three dimensional visualization models and relative information to help doctors in diagnosis and clinic. And also it gives doctors a virtual interventional treatment planning software. It is worthy to note is the segmentation module. There are two ways of segmentation in the designed system that the first one is manual segmentation and another is semi-automatic segmentation. By using VTK and ITK to build a plan system, the treatment can be high efficiency. VTK is responsible for visualization, while the ITK take care of the image segmentation and registration.
