Reaction: A Survey of Algorithms for Volume Visualization

In this paper the authors have presented a set of algorithms for the volume visualization. Good to read the five foundation algorithms. It has been 20 years since 1991 and we can see volume rendering and its increasing widespread use due to high performance processors and graphics. Did not really understand what the authors want to convey via photorealism. "jury is still out on this decision" doesn't conclude the discussion.
Future work is discussed at the end of the paper. It says that volume viz can be adapted by network based environment and parallel processing. Could we get the current results as what is the state of art technology used for volume rendering?
