Abstract

In this paper we present AnatomyBrowser, a framework for integration of images and textual information in medical applications. AnatomyBrowser allows the user to combine 3D surface models of anatomical structures, their cross-sectional slices, and the text available on the structures, while providing a rich set of cross-referencing and annotation capabilities. The 3D models of the structures are generated fully automatically from the segmented slices. The software is platform independent, yet is capable of utilizing available graphics resources. Possible applications include interactive anatomy atlases, image guided surgery and model based segmentation.
