Title (EN) ENHANCED VIRTUAL NAVIGATION AND EXAMINATION
(FR) NAVIGATION ET EXAMEN VIRTUELS AMELIORES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Virtual navigation (2255) and examination of virtual objects are enhanced using methods of insuring that an entire surface to be examined has been properly viewed. A user interface (Fig. 23) identifies regions which have not been subject to examination and provides a mechanism (2250) to route the user to these regions in the 3D display. Virtual examination is further improved by the use of measuring disks (905) to enhance quantitative measurements such as diameter, distance, volume and angle. Yet another enhancement to the virtual examination of objects is a method of electronic segmentation, or cleansing, which corrects for partial volume effects occurring in an object.
(FR)La présente invention concerne des procédés qui permettent d'améliorer la navigation (2255) et l'examen virtuels d'objets virtuels en ce qu'ils garantissent que la totalité d'une surface à examiner a été correctement visualisée. Selon les procédés de l'invention, une interface utilisateur identifie les régions qui n'ont pas été examinées et met à disposition un mécanisme (2250) qui dirige l'utilisateur vers ces régions sur l'écran d'affichage tridimensionnel. L'invention permet d'améliorer davantage encore l'examen virtuel en faisant appel à des disques de mesure (905) qui facilitent les mesures quantitatives telles que le diamètre, la distance, le volume et l'angle. L'invention se rapporte encore à une autre amélioration apportée à l'examen virtuel des objets grâce à un procédé de segmentation ou épuration électronique qui permet de corriger les effets volumiques partiels pouvant se produire dans un objet.
