Abstract

Virtual endoscopy systems are promising tools for the simplification of daily clinical procedures. In this paper, a conceptual framework for a virtual endoscopy system (VirEn) is proposed, which is intended to be a highly interactive system. Research efforts have concentrated on the generation of an optimal path for the automated navigation of the data set. Extensions to existing thinning algorithms used to generate the optimal path are presented and discussed. First results produced with VirEn are shown.
