Human brain functional MRI and DTI visualization with virtual reality

Interesting paper on human brain functional MRI and DTI visualization using a virtual reality setup. The virtual reality setup consists of a cave with projection on one wall and the floor.The system included 7'6"x10' screens, using passive projection and infitec glasses for stereoscopic 3-D effect. The system also utilized an Intersense IS-900 6-DOF tracking system with head-tracker and wand.

The authors conclude that the application will have potential applications in basic research, education, and surgical planning. Continued development is needed to implement the tensor visualization, 3D stereoscopy and interactive visualization.
