Abstract
The technology of 3D reconstruction of medical images is an important application in computer graphics and image processing, especially in biomedical engineering. In this paper, two types of surface construction algorithms for medical sequences images are reviewed in this paper, including Marching Cubes (MC) and Contour reconstruction. We describe the algorithms implementation framework by using Visualization Toolkit (VTK). After testing these algorithms on actual CT (Computed Tomography) data, we analyze their reconstructed results and make a comparison on each of their advantage and disadvantage for scope of application.
