FIG. 2.

A series of images illustrating the construction sequence for a slice including soft tissue, bone tissue, and air. (a) The bitmap template. (b) The homogenous soft tissue blank has had regions that will contain bone and air removed and has been shaped to the desired outline. (c) Bone tissue-equivalent material is introduced into the appropriate voids.

FIG. 3.

Soft tissue outlines for phantom slices containing lung and corresponding saved transparency lung regions.
