摘要：Despite the emerging of various innovations of visualization methods, highlighting and exploring the important function of interest of computational cardiac model still remain a challenging problem. Due to the complex and fine geometries of heart, the silhouette of the whole volume structure may be destroyed when there is a necessity to demonstrate cardiac electrophysiological behaviors. In this paper, we proposed a fusion visualization framework which combines the electrophysiology pattern with the anatomy pattern through a novel multi-dimensional fusion transfer function. A depth weighted optic radiation model is thus presented in the framework to inspect the occluded cardiac ischemia information. According to the depth to the tissue boundary, the hidden ischemia region of pathological tissue can be revealed from complex overlapping features. Experiment results on the cardiac anatomy and electrophysiological simulation data verifies the effectiveness of the proposed method for intuitively exploring and inspecting electrophysiological activities with the preserved authentic context of anatomical structure, which is found to be useful in analyzing and explaining cardiac functioning phenomena.
