Abstract

Virtual dissection refers to a display technique for polyp detection, where the colon is digitally straightened and then flattened using multirow detector Computed Tomograph (CT) images. As compared to virtual colonoscopy where polyps may be hidden from view behind the folds, the unravelled colon is more suitable for polyp detection, because the entire inner surface of the colon is displayed in a single view. The method was tested both on artificial and cadaveric phantoms. All polyps could be recognized on both phantoms. This technique for virtual dissection requires only a minimum of operator interaction.
