With regards to the safety measures put in place by the university to mitigate the risks of the COVID-19 virus, at this time all MSI systems will remain operational and can be accessed remotely as usual. The only planned outages concern our in-person Helpdesk and tutorials. More information, as well as alternative remote support options, can be found at MSI COVID-19 Continuity Plan

VolView is an intuitive, interactive system for volume visualization that allows researchers to quickly explore and analyze complex 3D medical or scientific data on a standard PC. Users can easily generate informative images and navigate the data for further analysis. 3D tools include composite and MIP volume rendering, contouring, cropping, and oblique reformatting. Segmentation can be performed, and resulting structures can be analyzed using distance, angle, surface area and volume measurement tools. Polygonal surface models can be exported for rapid prototyping. Data exploration is enhanced through tools such as filtering, contours, measurements, histograms, animation, and annotation.
To run this software interactively in a Linux environment use the command(s):
module load volview
