Leadtools.Medical3D Introduction

Show in webframe

The Leadtools.Medical3D assembly provides functionality for rendering and viewing a series of two-dimensional medical images in a three-dimensional space. The LEADTOOLS Medical 3D SDK simplifies the reconstruction techniques for the creation of 3D visual representations. The class library offers various mathematical algorithms to generate volumetric (3D) data using a stack of image slices. Support is provided for generation of many different alternate views of the original data using the various 3D reconstruction techniques (e.g. MPR, VRT, MIP, MinIP, SSD etc.). The toolkit allows rendering different volume types with options including planes, clipping, slab, scaling, zooming, full camera control, thresholding and color inversion.

A three-dimensisonal view is easier to analyze than the component two-dimensional images. Users can render the object in multiple ways and can select from a wide range of tools that make it easier to view, handle and manipulate 3D objects. 3D reconstruction allows the visualization of anatomical details which are difficult to evaluate using 2D axial slices alone.  Some example scenarios where the various 3D reconstruction techniques would be useful include:

LEADTOOLS Medical 3D .NET Class Library offers programmers the ability to create 3D applications quickly and without having to rely on an advanced knowledge of the 3D field. Developers can add 3D support to their applications with minimal lines of source code. As a result, the class library can be used effectively by both beginner and advanced developers.

The LEADTOOLS support of reconstruction in non-orthogonal (oblique) planes allows developers the option to choose the optimal plane to best display the anatomical structure of interest. Examining volumetric data improves the speed of interpretation and recognition and greatly decreases exam evaluation time.

For very large input objects the quality and speed trade off is available. The 3D toolkit will internally determine the trade off. For example, if you have a very large 3D object, LEADTOOLS will lower the quality of the 3D object while rotating. When the user releases the mouse (stops rotating the object), the object will switch back to the higher quality rendering.

LEADTOOLS includes an easy to use Medical 3D Control with built in action tools that can easily integrate with the LEADTOOLS Medical Viewer. This transforms the viewer into a feature rich, advanced 3D viewer with support for different layouts, tools and functionalities that are comparable to a high-end radiology work station. The toolkit ships with a Medical Workstation Viewer application and a Medical Web Viewer solution. These are complete applications with source code for you to customize.
