hello, i wonder if i can create in java a 3d image from a set of images (lets say 50 images).

if we combine those images (2d images), we can create a 3d image.

(each 2d image is an intersection of the 3d image)

can i do that?

i am not sure how i can explain it right.

it would be great if you can link me some articles or books so i can learn about those stuff.

thanks!

It depends on what you mean by 3D image. Do you mean a model you can rotate and move and look at from different angles? Do you mean a stereoscopic image?

What are these intersections you are talking about? Are they slices of the 3D model?

imagine that i want to create a rotatable 3d shape (a tube)

and my 2d images are circles. If i combine all those circles for a certain length i want to create a tube.

the 3d image i want to create looks like a tube and my images are vertical "cuts - slices" of the tube.

thanks for your fast reply!

ImageJ has a feature called "stacks" where a series of images is combined to create a 3D image. Stacks can be created either from multiple image files, or from a multi-image TIFF file. Once you have a stack there are many ways to display it and create projections.

The beauty of ImageJ is that it's both an image processing application and a Java library. That means you can try manually if it can do what you need done, and if it does, you can use its Java API -or its built-in macro language- to automate the task.
