We applied a refined version of our volumetric rendering technique for three-dimensional (3-D) computed tomographic (CT) imaging to display the cadaveric lung and the major components of the bronchial tree. We report details of the technical aspects of 3-D imaging of the lung, and four representative case studies of lung specimens from our initial-experience.
