3D plot showing number and severity of predicted lung attacks.

Lung attacks 3D plots are useful to visualize multi-dimensional data. In this example, a surface plot was used to visualize the probability distribution of all possible outcomes for a particular patient.

In this particular example, it can be immediately appreciated that two particular outcomes that are more probable than the rest.
