An Interactive Virtual Endoscopy Tool

  title={An Interactive Virtual Endoscopy Tool},
  author={Delphine Nain and Steven Haker and Ron Kikinis and W. Eric L. Grimson},
In this paper, we present the design and implementation of a 3D Virtual Endoscopy system for facilitating diagnostic and surgical planning phases of endoscopic procedures. Our system allows the user to interactively explore the internal surface of a 3D patient-specific anatomical model and to create and update a fly-through trajectory through the model to simulate endoscopy. We also present an automatic path planning algorithm that has been used to produce a colon fly-through with our system… CONTINUE READING
