Abstract: With development of biomedical and networking technology, interactive volume rendering with data transmitted via the network becomes an interesting topic. Two technical problems are data transmission and fast volume rendering. In this paper, two schemes using Wavelet foveation are proposed and implemented: the region-based and coarse-to-fine. The first scheme transmits and renders the region of interest (ROI) of volume data on the client site at highest resolution for the first time, and consequently it iteratively expands the region layer by layer towards to the peripheral. While the second one gives a complete image in a low resolution for the first time on the client. The detail coefficients will be transmitted continuously and the rendering result will be progressively refined depending on the distance to the ROI.
