Abstract: 

Advanced volume processing enables filtering, interpolation, reconstruction, feature extraction, and model fitting. This course covers reconstruction of continuous models from sampled data, application of transfer functions for shading and classification, and segmentation and projection of the reconstructed values for rendering. The goal is to illuminate structures within the data without generating unwanted artifacts or masking detail.

Topics: The mathematics of effective volume visualizations and the processes by which they are created. Emerging topics in volume-data processing, including level sets, shape extraction using adaptive deformable systems, and model-based segmentation.
