At the Medical Image Processing Group, we have been developing for the past several years software packages for the display and analysis of 3D medical objects. 3D98 is the most recent among them. It has been designed to work on a General Electric 9800 CT scanner or on its independent console. This paper describes the processing features of 3D98 and outlines some of the algorithms implemented in it. From the information processing point of view, 3D98 goes through four distinct steps: house keeping, dialogue, data processing, and termination. The paper describes these steps and illustrates the available options using real CT data.
