gVirtualXRay - Virtual X-Ray Imaging Library on GPU


This project is focused on developing new software technologies for simulating X-ray images on the graphics processor unit (GPU) using OpenGL. It supports ‘old’ OpenGL implementation as well as modern OpenGL core profile (OpenGL 3.2+). No deprecated function in OpenGL has been used. The library takes care of matrix transformations, matrix stacks, etc.
