Java3D is a graphics API whereas VTK is a visualization
system, so they are apples and oranges. Typically
visualization systems use graphics APIs, as for example
VisAD uses Java3D and Java2D.

If you want to render real time medical images in Java3D,
then the VisAD visualization system can help you do that.
VisAD defines a data model that you put your data into,
then you link your data with a DisplayImplJ3D with
appropriate ScalarMaps to get the rendering you want.
VisAD also provides interfaces to a number of common
file formats for reading data into the VisAD data model.
See Ugo's tutorial linked from the VisAD web page for
more details.
