Visualising a multi-dimensional volume data set is a computationally intensive process. Parallel processing offers the potential for achieving the visualisation in a reasonable time. This paper discusses how an appropriate data management approach and the correct management of tasks in the parallel implementation can improve overall system performance. A number of profiling and load balancing strategies are considered to exploit any coherence that may exist as the view point moves.
