    The author discusses the beautiful displays of light in the air around us, particularly the elegant mechanisms that bring about the striking atmospheric effects associated with solar halos. Although people have been drawing and hypothesizing about solar halos and sun dogs for many years, the pioneer who developed a solid quantitative demonstration of their origins is Robert Greenler. The author co... View full abstract»

    The key to developing line drawing algorithms is an explicit reference model for quantifying a “good” raster approximation. The article looks at old practices, then demonstrates the development of line and edge drawing algorithms. Computer driven raster displays introduce a higher performance, more demanding technology that benefits from systematic rules. To examine the development of ... View full abstract»

    Biplane angiography generates just two time equivalent X-ray images. These X-ray systems can be rotated independently from each other (restricted by possible collisions only). The article explains how highly accurate 3D models of vessel systems can be reconstructed, visualized, and quantitatively evaluated from these X-ray images View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (600 KB)

    Visualization of the human body and its inner structure has challenged artists and scientists for centuries. For 500 years, since Leonardo da Vinci, drawings have been the main resource for learning anatomy because they allow the mixture of realism and abstraction suitable for didactic purposes. With the discovery of X-rays 100 years ago, it became possible to look into the living body. Only since... View full abstract»

    Interactive computer graphics visualization allows simulation of craniofacial procedures before surgical intervention. Two simulation modes are currently available: physical replicas created with CT data applied to numerically controlled milling machines or stereolithography machines; and 3D graphical images created from tomographic data. The validity of graphically rendered CT or MR scanned image... View full abstract»
