The amplitude-modulated in vessel viewing system (IVVS), developed by ENEA for the ITER machine, is a versatile apparatus capable to scan the internal of a vessel and acquire amplitude and range data of a quasi-spherical field of view. By coupling the two images, we obtain a true 3D image of the scene, with a sub-millimetre range precision for each point scanned in the range 2-7 m. In this article, we present the integrated software system we have developed in ENEA Frascati, in collaboration with the CASPUR Consortium. This package allows driving the image acquisition and rendering the acquired image in a 2D and/or 3D framework and comparing portions of image with a sample data to highlight differences. © 2005 Elsevier B.V.
