Marching Cubes: A High Resolution 3D Surface Construction Algorithm

This a technical paper where the algorithms and implementations are discussed. Authors discuss about various other unheard methods for 3d visualizations like contour surfacing, ray casting. The paper was little complex when the actual implementation part is discussed.

This paper introduce various areas where 3d visualizations can be used and particularly about the medical representations. It is also great that this algorithm considers a variety of medical data, from CT scans, MRI scans and SPECT scans. The article as adds a note about the prospects of using this algorithm more extensively as a result of faster hardware and improvement in display systems.

Marching algorithm is explained in depth with the implantation, programming language used and also the results.
