MRI and CT scanners have long been used to produce three-dimensional samplings of anatomy elements for use in medical visualization and analysis. Physicians often need to construct surfaces representing the anatomical shape in order to conduct treatment, such as radiating a tumor. Traditionally, this is done by a time-consuming process in which an experienced physician marks a series of parallel contours that outline the object of interest.
