TDR-3Dbase: software for 3D reconstruction

With the 3D Reconstruction program (TDR-3dbase) you can generate a 3D reconstruction from a series of aligned section images. This is done by drawing the contours (boundaries) of the structures you are interested in, e.g. anatomical structures or perhaps expression patterns. When you do this for all the sections the result will be a complete three dimensional model of those structures. The usage of TDR-3dbase is illustrated by the example below.

Click to view large version The screenshot on the left shows the 'input mode' of the reconstruction program.
A transversal section of a 48 hpf zebrafish embryo is being displayed. Colored coded contours have been drawn on top of this section image. In this example the contours delineate anatomical structures.

At any time during the input process you can view your results in 3D.

The reconstruction data is stored into an XML file, which can be visualized using web-technology. The application of this technolgy is illustrated by our reconstruction viewer, which lets you browse the section images and also displays other reconstruction information (at least IE5 required!)
