  • Transparent rendering of intraluminal contrast for 3D polyp visualization at CT colonography JOURNAL OF COMPUTER ASSISTED TOMOGRAPHY Shi, R., Napel, S., Rosenberg, J. K., Shin, L. K., Walsh, C. F., Mogensen, M. A., Joshi, A. J., Pankhudi, P., Beaulieu, C. F. 2007; 31 (5): 773-779


    We developed a classifier that permits transparent rendering of both tagging material and air to facilitate interpretation of tagged computed tomographic (CT) colonography. With this technique, a reader can simultaneously appreciate polyps on endoluminal views both covered with tagging material and against air, along with unmodified 2-dimensional CT images. Evaluated with 49 polyps from 26 patients (data from public National Library of Medicine, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act compliant), 3 readers were able to determine the presence/absence of polyps in tagged locations with equivalent accuracy compared with polyps in air. This method offers an alternative way to visualize tagged CT colonography.
