HPMVS: A High Performance Visualization Tool Suite that Assists in Kidney Assessment

Timothy S. Newman, Ning Tang


This paper introduces an interactive volume visualization tool suite, the High Performance Medical Visualization tool Suite (HPMVS). The suite of tools is designed to aid medical staff in the assessment of renal disorders such as those caused by the von Hippel Lindau (VHL) Syndrome. The tools are useful for image-based evaluation of the severity and progression of disease and for planning and monitoring treatment. The configuration of HPMVS can provide near real-time visualization by allowing highly intensive computations to be computed on a supercomputer and less intensive computations and final display to be realized on a desktop workstation. Focus in this paper is on the exploration and extraction tools and the tool set configuration.
