In this work we present two methods for visualization ofSRμCT-scanned 3D volumes of screw-shaped bone implant samples:thread fly-through and 2D unfolding. The thread fly-through generatesan animation by following the thread helix and extracting slices alongit. Relevant features, such as bone ratio and bone implant contact, arecomputed for each slice of the animation and displayed as graphs besidethe animation. The 2D unfolding, on the other hand, maps the implantsurface onto which feature information is projected to a 2D image, providingan instant overview of the whole implant. The unfolding is madearea-preserving when appropriate. These visualization methods facilitatebetter understanding of the bone-implant integration and providesa good platform for communication between involved experts.
