CT colonography is a screening technique for adenomatous colorectal polyps, which are important precursors to colon cancer. Computer aided detection (CAD) systems are developed to assist radiologists. We present a CAD system that substantially reduces false positives while keeping the sensitivity high. Hereto, we combine protrusion measures derived from the solution of a non-linear partial differential equation (PDE) applied to both an explicit mesh and an implicit volumetric representation of… CONTINUE READING
