comment Why does Mathematica Spawn Additional Dock Icons on OS X?
OK. I forgot to mention that the icons remain in the dock even after the operation completes (I added this detail to my question). Is there any way to at least close the front ends that are launched after the calculation completes?

@Silvia I tried tinkering with that a bit, couldn't get any satisfactory results.

comment Increase precision for a entire notebook
@Anne-Claire It should, so long as you don't later kill the parallel kernels. The ParallelEvaluate needs to be run every time the parallel kernels are created.

Yeah I tried a few others, all show similar behavior. A constant opacity also doesn't work.

comment Limited Opacity Levels in Image3D?
I know that some volume renderers do only 256 discrete levels (IDL being an ancient example). I was hoping it was a global rendering option that perhaps was causing this.

@belisarius I'm using V9 on OS X. Even if the banding is absent, the discrete color levels are undesirable, which I still see in your output.
