Cinematic rendering

Cinematic rendering is a novel 3D rendering algorithm that produces a more photorealistic representation of 3D images with enhanced depth and shape perception than achieved with standard volume rendering (VR) 1. It was developed by Siemens Healthineer 2. It is not currently approved for clinical use.

Cinematic rendering follows the same steps used for volume rendering, but a more complex algorithm requires higher computational power with longer post processing times than VR 1-3.

Potential applications include anatomy teaching, patient education, surgical planning (cardiac, vascular, and trauma surgery procedures), disease detection. Cinematic rendering can be an alternative to 3D printing when the latter is not available 1-3.
