Abstract

The development of multislice computed tomography (CT) scanners able to acquire high-resolution isotropic volumetric datasets has paved the way for the elaboration of three-dimensional (3D) CT images into clinical practice. Currently, both maximum intensity projection (MIP) and volume rendering (VR) methods are commonly used as adjuncts to axial images and multiplanar reformations (MPR) in cases of complex anatomy and physiology (1).
