Re-projection of Terabyte-Sized Images



Peter Bajcsy, Antoine Vandecreme, Mary C. Brady


This work addresses the problem of re-projecting a terabyte-sized 3D data set represented as a set of 2D Deep Zoom pyramids. In general, a re-projection for small 3D data sets is executed directly in RAM. However, RAM becomes a limiting factor for terabyte-sized 3D volumes formed by a stack of hundreds of megapixel to gigapixel 2D frames. We have benchmarked three methods to perform the re-projection computation in order to overcome the RAM limitation.
