Abstract

We present a novel rendering algorithm that analyses the ray profiles along the line of sight. The profiles are subdivided according to encountered peaks and valleys at so called transition points. The sensitivity of these transition points is calibrated via two thresholds. The slope threshold is based on the magnitude of a peak following a valley, while the peeling threshold measures the depth of the transition point relative to the neighboring rays. This technique separates the dataset into a number of feature layers. The user can scroll through the layers inspecting various features from the current view position. While our technique has been inspired by opacity peeling approach, we demonstrate that we can reveal detectable features even in the third and fourth layers for both CT and MRI datasets.
