This work describes several methods that intend to solve such medical image processing tasks as extraction and 3D visualization of the region of interest (ROI). The proposed methods were tested on the medical images of a brain acquired by computer tomography and proven to be applicable to different types of ROI, resulting in a possible visualization of several ROI at once, i.e. pathology and the head of a patient. The results can be used to provide practical improvements to the reliability of medical diagnostics.
