CUDA Conversion Example

3D Image Processing

Three-dimensional medical image processing is one of the most computationally intensive fields, with a huge amount of data. Through a 3D medical image processing example, we experience a practical CUDA conversion process from MATLAB code and gain a real speed boost in performance. This chapter takes us through a CUDA converting example with c-mex code, as well as an analysis of the profiling results and planning a CUDA conversion, as well as the practical CUDA conversion of big files.
