Abstract : This paper reports the design and implementation of ANAMICA, a three-dimensional (3-D) medical data visualisation and characterisation system which provides a complete set of image processing options. Constructions of internal surfaces from total or partial volume of 3-D data and cut-out views are supported by means of 'volume rendering' as well as object space methods. Arbitrary planar and curved sections of 3-D data can be obtained and processed subsequently as standard 2-D images. Volumetrics and a preliminary characterisation of tissues based on histograms are also supported. A window based user-interface provides convenient access to all these options.
