Abstract

An image processing system developed to support evaluation of computed tomographic colonography (CTC) was presented at this conference in 1996. There is growing acceptance of the merits of interactive, intraluminal volume rendering for CTC, however, most current CTC systems contain technical problems that prohibit their routine clinical application. These problems include: the large amount the data that requires processing, the need for extensive preprocessing, limitations of rendered scene parameters imposed during preprocessing, and long interpretation times.
