Exploring Marching Cubes and Tetra-Cubes for Brain Isosurface Generation
Several algorithms for generating 3D isosurfaces are discussed. The application of Marching Cubes and Tetra-Cubes to MRI brain surface data are explored. The Visualization Toolkit (VTK) was extensively used for its visualization pipeline and Marching Cubes implementation. The Tetra-Cubes algorithm was implemented as a VTK class and the surface generated compared to the surface generated by Marching Cubes.
