Adapted Transfer Function Design for Coronary Artery Evaluation
We present an approach for adapted transfer function (TF) specification to highlight pathologic changes of the coronary artery vessel wall based on contrast medium-enhanced computed tomography (CT) datasets. The TFs are combined with common visualization techniques for the evaluation of coronary arteries in CT image data. The presented mapping of CT values in Hounsfield Units (HU) to optical properties such as color and opacity leads to a different color coding for different plaque types.
