Abstract

Multimodal visualization of functional and anatomical data of the human brain is an important field in medical volume visualization. The aim of this application is to provide the user with information on the location of functional activations in the different regions of the brain. When the approach of direct volume rendering is chosen, the visual impression of details usually suffers from accumulating the image from colors and opacities derived from the data set. We present extensions to overcome this problem: \emph{Transfer function volumes} are used for the highlighting of activated regions. \emph{Multiple views
