The medical motivation for interactive manipulation of 3D data by a 2D display device is presented. Four specific topics are described: (i) interactive orientation specification, (ii) 3D83, a program currently used in clinical practice, (iii) directed contour based display and manipulation, and (iv) binary array based display and manipulation. Timings are reported on medical examples. Advantages and disadvantages of the various approaches are discussed.
