The main difference between multi-volume rendering and mono-volume rendering is data intermixing. In this paper, we present three levels of data intermixing and their rendering pipelines in direct multi-volume rendering, which discriminate image level intensity intermixing, accumulation level opacity intermixing, and illumination model level parameter intermixing. In the context of radiotherapy treatment planning, different data intermixing methods are applied to three volumes, including CT volume, Dose volume, and Segmentation volume, to compare the features of different data intermixing methods.
