Reaction : Marching cubes: A high resolution 3D surface construction algorithm

Marching cubes is a new algorithm for 3D surface construction,
complements 2D CT, MR, and SPECT data by giving
physicians 3D views of the anatomy.

The steps listed which actually gives a complete overview of the exact steps reading four slices into the memory and finally outputting the triangle vertices and vertex normals, it the best part of the paper.

Another interesting part was the application of visualization into medical scanning and related fields.
