Public visualization of high quality medical information has been wildly available since the creation of the Visible Human Project in the late 90ÃÂ´s. We discuss the extraction of information from 3D volumes along curved slices with emphasis on those that can be displayed on the plane without deformation. Special attention is given to a dental volume containing the sixteen teeth of the upper human jaw. We review several approaches to display information along curved slices contained within the 3D data set.© (2011) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
