Abstract

Volume data are widely used in many areas, especially in biomedical science and geology. However, current visualization technologies of volume data cannot satisfy the visual requirements of humans. In this study, we propose two holographic display methods for volume data. The first method is polygon-based, and the other is maximum intensity projection (MIP)-based. Both methods are able to generate computer generated holograms of volume data. The polygon-based method can obtain various and colorful holograms, while the MIP-based method can be quickly calculated. Both methods can generate holographic animations, which were displayed on an electro-holography device.
