At this year's International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) exhibition in Frankfurt, scientists of JARA-HPC have presented an application for visualization of 3D-Polarized Light Imaging (3D-PLI) data. In the exhibit, the visitors of the booth were able to interactively explore the structure of an ex-vivo human brain suffering from Shy-Drager syndrome, by inspecting the direct outputs of 3D-PLI such as transmittance, retardation, inclination and direction maps. In addition, they were provided means and guidance to perform further analysis on the dataset including harmonic function fitting and local tractography.
|The responses were overall positive, although the majority of the visitors were not medical experts. The parallel features of the application, in particular particle and raytracing of large vector data, were highlighted and one of the primary interests of the attendants.||
