Efficient and high-quality visualization have a great potential for enhancing treatment planning and intra-operative support. In this tutorial, we will introduce surface and direct volume rendering and explain how advanced methods can be efficiently employed. Specific examples of advanced methods include smooth reconstructions of surface data from medical volume data, visualization of vascular structures and virtual endoscopy. Many examples and stress clinical applications will be provided. Selected applications, such as computer-assisted shoulder replacement, diagnosis of coronary artery disease and virtual colonoscopy will be presented and demonstrated in more detail. These detailed examples show how techniques are integrated with other methods, in particular from image analysis and simulation, to solve real problems. Finally, we will discuss strategies of assessing the impact of visualization techniques on treatment planning.
