3-D image reconstruction, visualization and analysis application in stereotactic radiosurgery are discussed. For 3-D visualization and analysis, labeled 2-D slices are registered on a 3-d grid. The surface- and volume-based methods of image reconstruction and segmentation are used. The surface-based method extracts a surface of the structure of interest and represents it as a set of surface elements. The volume method involves labeling by classification and direct segmentation. Two treatment planning systems composed of image input and planning subsystems are also described.
