Partial volume effect appears as "blurring" over sharp edges.
It also provides thinner slices with reduced partial volume artifact and decreased noise as well as isotropic imaging with almost equal resolution in all planes.
The Vivace 3D imaging suite offers four distinct rendering modes for better image viewing - maximum intensity projection (MIP), minimum intensity projection (minIP), shaded volume and unshaded volume, as well as multi-planar reformatting (MPR), powerful tools for cross-correlation between volume rendered views, and MPR views and "opacity modulations" that eliminate artifacts from partial volume effects.
