Computed tomography (CT) data sets obtained in 14 patients were used in a segmentation method for virtual bronchoscopy (VB). The method constrained the distance of propagation of a region-growing algorithm. The resulting three-dimensional bronchial model was a faithful representation of the source CT data and could be manipulated in real time at frame rates of one to two frames per second. Preliminary data showed that 90% of bronchi (up to third order) measureable on multiplanar CT reformations… CONTINUE READING
