How to read CT scan images with openGL, please help


It has been days that i am searching on google and various resources. But no clue how to do it. As a n00b it is silly to say but i am dire need to know how to proceed.

Any key words which i should look for, tutorial or book which can show me how to handle 3d data will be helpful. CT scan images have voxels, and i still have no idea how to do it in openGL. I have been looking into OpenGL Programming Guide and it has 2 pages of 3d texture(it said it is used in medical imaging).

Any kind of help is appretiated.

how about a litle search in the forums here ?
the keywords are “volume rendering”.;f=3;t=014215#000004
