Background DICOM standard does not have modules that provide the possibilities of two-dimensional Presentation States to three-dimensional (3D). Once the final 3D rendering is obtained, only video/image exporting or snapshots can be used. To increase the utility of 3D Presentation States in clinical practice and teleradiology, the storing and transferring the segmentation results, obtained after tedious procedures, can be very effective.
