Abstract

Planar virtual pathology (PVP) is an isometric rendering method for examining the CT colonography dataset, which renders the colon in discrete colonic segments. Ten patients with 36 polyps were evaluated using traditional 2D axial, 2D multiplanar reformatted, and 3D endoluminal images as well as PVP. PVP displayed 13 of 17 (76%) polyps of >1 cm, whereas 11 of 17 (65%) were detected using traditional rendering methods. PVP may be a useful adjunct in detecting additional polyps at CT colonography.
