The use of color rapid prototyping (RP) plaster models as visualization tools to support scientific research in diffusion-tensor (DT) MRI analysis was analyzed. The surgeons and neurologist were given virtual-reality (VR) applications to visualize different aspects of their brain data. The physical representation of the virtual models allowed them to review the data with a very robust, natural and fast haptic interface. Results show that using information in the DT-MRI data, models are created with better structural stability.
