Design and Implementation of an Application. Programming Interface for Volume Rendering
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree)Student thesis
To efficiently examine volumetric data sets from CT or MRI scans good volume rendering applications are needed. This thesis describes the design and implementation of an application programming interface (API) to be used when developing volume-rendering applications. A complete application programming interface has been designed. The interface is designed so that it makes writing application programs containing volume rendering fast and easy. The interface also makes created application programs hardware independent. Volume rendering using 3d-textures is implemented on Windows and Unix platforms. Rendering performance has been compared between different graphics hardware.
