MIP displays the maximum voxel intensity along a line of viewer projection in a given volume. High-density structures, such as contrast-filled vessels and the collecting system, are demonstrated nicely in images, such as angiograms or urograms (Fig.C).
The main disadvantage of MIP is that it obscures the area of interest by high-density material, such as bone, calcium, and oral contrast medium. With the MIP technique, a 3-D effect can be obtained with rotational viewing of multiple projections, but it lacks depth orientation.
