Title: VISUAL SUPPRESSION OF SELECTIVE TISSUE IN IMAGE DATA
Abstract:
A method image data processor (318) includes a shape likelihood determiner (402) that processes voxels of image data and determines a likelihood that a voxel represents predetermined tissue of interest for a plurality of the voxels based on a shape of a tissue represented by the voxel, an opacity determiner (406) that determines an opacity suppression for each of the plurality of voxels based on the likelihood, a re-formatter (410) that re-formats the image data based on the determined opacity suppression, generating opacity suppressed re-formatted data, and a rendering engine (412) that visually presents the opacity suppressed re-formatted data.
