Although interactive volume rendering is normally extremely
tedious, time-consuming, and data-intensive, the CUHK technology enables
much easier fragment processing. In addition, it has been determined that
- Is faster than existing technologies in the market;
- Can accommodate a large dataset volume;
- Is suitable for an ordinary PC;
- Provides a real-time, interactive system and method for visualizing
images in three dimensions.
The technology was developed by Dr. Heng Pheng-Ann at The Chinese
University of Hong Kong (CUHK). Dr. Heng is a professor in the Department of
Computer Science and Engineering at CUHK. For his biography, see:
