Virtual endoscopy of the middle ear: experimental and clinical results of a standardised approach using multi-slice helical computed tomography


Virtual endoscopy (VE) enables non-invasive 3D endoluminal imaging of the middle ear by post-processing of CT data. To optimise the clinical application a standardised approach was evaluated in normal and pathologic cases. Data acquisition was performed using multi-slice helical CT in 20 normal patients and 15 patients with malformation or trauma. Virtual… (More)
