Modern imaging techniques allow information from within the human body to be obtained by using noninvasive or minimally invasive means. This article is intended as a summary of the tools used for processing and displaying such datasets, with a focus on abdominal imaging. Although these tools and their applications are permanently evolving, their use for clinic and research is already recognized as essential. As an insight into the near future, advanced protocols such as multidimensional and multimodality diagnostic and therapy planning are also demonstrated with a few clinical examples.
