Reduction of false positives by internal features for polyp detection in CT-based virtual colonoscopy.

Abstract

In this paper, we present a computer-aided detection (CAD) method to extract and use internal features to reduce false positive (FP) rate generated by surface-based measures on the inner colon wall in computed tomographic (CT) colonography. Firstly, a new shape description global curvature, which can provide an overall shape description of the colon wall… (More)
