Medical Volume Explorer


 MVE - Medical Volume Explorer




MVE - Medical Volume Explorer - is a visualization program for medical data.

It is based on
OpenGL, GLScene and on Cg shaders from NVIDIA.
The program supports different 2D views (axial, coronal and sagittal), Direct Volume Rendering, Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP) gradient lighting and a stereoscopic anaglyph visualization.
MVE has a multi format file interface for CT, MRI, PET and SPECT data and can read DICOM, ANALYZE, BMP, GIF, JP2000, JPG, PNG, PCX, PNG, TGA and TIF files.

The Volume Viewer as the main module displays 3D data directly without further conversion of the geometry like surface construction algorithms (marching cubes). The result is a natural and clear representation of the volume data. The volume object can be rotated and scaled in real-time and viewed as a stereoscopic image.

MVE is divided into 4 modules:
File Viewer for selecting and opening files,
Image Viewer for 2D visualization of axial, coronal and sagittal images,
Volume Viewer for 3D visualization with "Direct Volume Rendering" of the whole volume including
   very high resolution (512 x 512 x 512 voxels),
   clipping volumes with any angles,
   maximum intensity projection (MIP),
   stereoscopic anaglyph visualization.
Information Viewer for information about DICOM and ANALYZE files.

The program is free available for medial, academic, research and educational use.
