If you’ve seen TV medical shows like House - they always ask for an MRI
at some point during the proceedings - you may not have thought that
visualizing this type of data can be done in a games engine. The image
shows Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) data being visualised by
Esperient Creator and rendered using a pixel shader..
A series of MRI data slices were combined together to form a volume
texture. The volume texture is then processed and rendered by a shader
executing on the graphics card. The users can rotate, and change shader
parameters like lighting and opacity.
The entire application was developed in Esperient Creator and a video of
the demo can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6g-ErqZwTYg
