Abstract

Scans of brains result in data that can be challenging to display due to its complexity, multi-dimensionality, and range. Visual representations of such data are limited due to the nature of the display, the number of possible dimensions that can be represented visually, and the capacity of our visual system to perceive and interpret visual data. This paper describes the use of sonification to interpret brain scans and use sound as a complementary tool to view, analyze, and diagnose. The sonification tool SoniScan is described and evaluated as a method to augment visual brain data display.
