Abstract
In recent years, the number and utility of 3-D rendering frameworks has grown substantially. A quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the capabilities of a subset of these systems is important to determine the applicability of these methods to typical medical visualization tasks. The libraries evaluated in this paper include the Java3D Application Programming Interface (API), Java OpenGL (Jogl) API, a multi-histogram software-based rendering method, and the WildMagic API. Volume renderer implementations using each of these frameworks were developed using the platform-independent Java programming language. Quantitative performance measurements (frames per second, memory usage) were used to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of each implementation.
