I believe you're looking for Maximum Intensity Projection. If your data is any 
kind of vtkImageData, you can feed it into a vtkVolumeRayCastMapper (or 
vtkFixedPointVolumeRayCastMapper), and set the blend mode to maximum 
intensity. The method of doing this varies between these two, so you'll have 
to look into their documentation for it.
