Biomedical applications of small animal imaging are creating exciting opportunities to extend the scientific impact of visualization research. The effective pairing of non-linear image filtering and direct volume rendering is one strategy for scientists to quickly explore and understand the volumetric scans of their specimens. Volume rendering may offer an effective way to rapidly explore and interpret the computer tomography (CT) data without image segmentation. The effectiveness of direct volume rendering as a tool of scientific visualization depends on the action of the transfer functions, which maps the numerical properties of the acquired volume data to the colors and opacities making the final rendering.
