I have written a GUI for doing volume-rendering in IDL.  It is based on the
demo which RSI provides which shows an electron probability distribution and a
PET/MRI scan.  That demo is crippled, since it can't read other data sets, etc.
You can get my volume_render.pro, and also make_movie.pro (view 3-D data sets
as a movie of frames in the X, Y or Z directions, optional MPEG output)  and
image_display.pro (2-D image display with pan, zoom, cursor into your data,
etc.) at:
