ABSTRACT
Multidisciplinary team (MDI) cancer meetings are frequently too large to be held in radiology departments, although much of the discussion at MDI meetings revolves around the radiologist's interpretation of the patient's imaging. The aim of this study is to modify a PC based 3D volume rendering application developed by researchers for research purposes into a more user friendly application for presenting good quality radiological images, extracted from DICOM files, via a data projector at our weekly MDI meetings.
