As already mentioned on debian-science, VTK (http://www.vtk.org/)
is almost the de facto standard for volume rendering in medical
imaging.  However, VTK is more a development toolkit rather than
an end user application like Mimics, which is what the original
poster initially asked for. 

It seems Amide has some volume rendering capabilities, but I
have never used them by myself. I also don't know to what extent
the Amide package in Sid supports volume rendering, because 
of the missing volpack thingy.
