	It looks like what you really want is a volume rendering system,
as far as public domain, you might be interestest in apE.  apE is available
for a $75 fee from apE at apE.sogp.osc.edu (I think there is an old SUN
version for free).  There is also a variety of NCSA software for X11.
I doubt you'll find anything for DOS machines since volume rendering is
a real memory hog!!!  
	If you have access to a Silicon Graphics machine you may 
want to look into Voxel View or some other renderer.
Good Luck,
