In the future we would like to move this system to distributed parallel environment so that it can handle larger datasets at interactive frame rates. We would also like to explore the use of multi-dimensional transfer functions for mixed modality datasets. Another extension would be to develop shading models that are more appropriate for scientific visualization. Immersive environments are an exciting possibility for this class of volume rendering. Finally, user studies could allow us to evaluate the effectiveness of this approach and make improvements.
