To obtain insight to the massive data that modern MRI technology provides, neurosurgeons and research scientists require an integrated system that reads multiple modalities of data, visualizes the information in an intuitive fashion, and offers instant user feedback. Similar systems have been designed and used in practice but require large-scale workstations. To relieve budget concerned hospitals and research labs from this requirement, we designed MediCAD, a software package that runs on personal computers with interactive frame rate. This software not only adds to user convenience, but offers information that is otherwise not intuitive.
