UBC CS TR-97-21 Summary

A Network-Enhanced Volume Renderer, August 01, 1997 Jeff LaPorte, 14 pages

Volume renedering is superior in many respects to conventional methods of medical visualization. Extending this ability into the realm of telemedicine provides the opportunity for health professionals to offer expertise not normally available to smaller communities, via computer networking of health centers. This report describes such a software system for collaboration, a network-enhanced version of an existing program called Volren. The methods used to provide network functionality in Volren can serve as a prototype for future multiuser applications.
