Abstract

We present a new method to visualize virtual endoscopic views. We propose to flatten the organ by the direct projection of the surface onto a set of cylinders. Two sampling strategies are presented and the introduced distortions are studied. A non-photorealistic technique is presented to enhance the perception of the images. Finally, an approximate but real-time endoscopic fly-through is possible by using the data obtained by the projection technique.
