Abstract

See full text

The first image may be displayed adjacent to the second image where the second image is a three dimensional image. An element may be selected in the first image and a matching element may be selected in the second image. A selection may be permitted to view a merged view where the merged view is the first image displayed over the second image by varying the opaqueness of the images. If the merged view is not acceptable, the method may repeat and if the merged view is acceptable; the first view onto the second view and the merged view may be stored as a merged image.
