Abstract


We propose two simple and efficient visualization techniques for assisting understanding of complex three-dimensional structures like human anatomy: (1) applying Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO), Depth of Field (DoF), and Depth Cueing (DC) to an original rendering result image in real-time, and (2) adding “caps" to thin polygonal tube structures which results in pseudo-thick, hollow structures with a small amount of additional polygons.
